The Literature, Medicine, and Culture Colloquium (LMCC) is an informal working group of graduate students (along with faculty, librarians, and a few undergrads) who meet monthly to talk about all things LMC. In the past, we’ve met to workshop conference papers or other works-in-progress, discuss shared readings, and review journal articles. LMCC is a growing, energized organization for grad students in English and beyond. Drawing on a diverse array of personal and disciplinary perspectives, LMCC participants explore medical narratives, popular and professional health discourses, and other topics in the health humanities.
We will have our first meeting of the year on Thursday Sept 29th, from 3:00-4:30 pm in the HHIVE Lab (Greenlaw 524). This month we will be reading “Critical medical humanities: embracing entanglement, taking risks” by William Viney, Felicity Callard, Angela Woods, as well as Mel Chen’s, “Unpacking intoxication, racializing disability.” Both texts are short and attached and will also be posted on the LMCCwebpage. Refreshments will (always) be provided.
