Health Humanities and Social Justice: Breath, Body, Voice

Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 9:00am to Saturday, September 16, 2017 - 5:00pm

This will be the culminating event of the Humanities Futures project at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute. 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?

Through keynotes, panels, interactive workshops and performances, the conference will engage with four central areas of concern: arts, humanities and healing; access and voice; health and its environments; and unsettling/resettling the human.
