UEA: Intersection of Medicine and the Humanities
Thursday 26 May 2022
18:30 to 19:30
ONLINE AND IN-PERSON AT THE ROYAL INSTITUTION OF GREAT BRITAIN, LONDON
YOU'RE INVITED TO THE NEW UEA LASDUN LECTURE
What is the intersection of medicine and the humanities? At our first London-based event in over two years, we will explore this emerging field of research with a very special panel event.
On the surface of things, these two subjects might seem unrelated. Join us to hear three leading UEA academics – Professor (and author of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story)Christie Watson,Dr Harriet CooperandProfessor Sally Hardy– give their insights into how medicine and the humanities converge to create a more holistic approach to healthcare.
What better place to host such an event thanThe Royal Institution of Great Britain, London. A venue with huge cultural and historical significance – and at the forefront of introducing new teachings in science to the public. It truly is a spectacle within itself and one not to be missed.
And – if that wasn’t enough – you will have the chance to see the work of recent UEA graduate,Dr Lena Ibrahim. Now working as an academic junior doctor at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, she began creating beautiful portraits of NHS staff to unwind after a stressful shift. A fantastic example of how medicine and the humanities can overlap in practice.
The event is open to all and will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception. Read on for registration information.
Can't make it on the night? A recording of the event will be made available on our UEA Public Events YouTube channel the day after the event for you to watch and share.
