Imagination is not Imaginary: What does Art Do and Why Does it Matter in Medicine?
April 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Institute for Arts and Humanities, The Departments of Social Medicine, Anthropology, English and Comparative Literature, and Carolina Performing Arts Present a Workshop-Dialogue:
Imagination is not Imaginary:
What does Art Do and Why Does it
Matter in Medicine?
A response by an artist and person with chronic illness to the recent announcement by the American Association of Medical Colleges for the need for Humanities and Arts in Medical Education. This event will be a workshop-dialogue to interrogate how Art is in and of itself, a research practice. A short excerpt of The Invisible Elephant Project will be performed.
Marina Tsaplina is an Associate of the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine at Duke University; Kienle Scholar in Medical Humanities at Penn State College of Medicine; and Founder of THE BETES Organization.
Her workshop will include a discussion of her work with puppetry in healthcare, non-apparent/apparent disability, reframing the biopharmaceutical lens, and experiential exercises that bring everyone into active practice of embodied imagination.
