Duke Health Humanities & Social Justice: Breath, Body, Voice (Humanities Futures Capstone Conference)
September 14, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Please save the date for the culminating event of the 2014-2017 Mellon Grant at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute, Humanities Futures! The capstone conference, titled Health Humanities & Social Justice: Breath, Body, Voice, will focus on the health humanities. We define health on a continuum from the health sciences to states of health, and focus on social justice to bridge the lived experiences of health and wellness in both our academic and non-academic communities. Furthermore, in 2017, we ask: how are the humanities transforming health, and how is health transforming the humanities? And what do these mutual influences suggest concerning the health of the humanities?
