Description

The first Health Humanities Symposium at the University of Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art explores the relationship between health, healing, and crisis.

As we’ve seen throughout this past year, health is a contested personal, cultural, political, and social state, where questions of health and healing intersect with issues of race, gender, class, citizenship, art, education, and more. In this symposium, we cultivate a dialogue across disciplinary and methodological boundaries with those invested in grappling with the role of humanistic work in both crises and futures of recovery, renewal, and restoration.
