IN PERSON ATTENDANCE: Global Medical Humanities: Exploring the “milieu”

Oct 6 - 8, 2021 · Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
Each workshop, key note presentation and panel will cultivate conversation across genres, performances, knowledges, and experiences.

The events will engage with this idea of the global, medicine, and the medical humanities through the spectre of the milieu. The milieu is conceived as a space where language, practice, stories, knowledge, and experiences combine and are combined. The milieu is pressed upon from the outside, to recall a Deleuzean construction, yet its contours also push back. With this focus, we restore the milieu as central to understanding both medicine and the medical humanities, their relationship, function, and role in imagining what is possible within and outside the current space of practice and analysis. Each workshop, key note presentation and panel will cultivate conversation across genres, performances, knowledges, and experiences. The panels aim to be transformative in our local milieux while also inciting radicality globally.
