Health Humanities Lab Open House

What is "health humanities"? Come find out at this kick-off event for the Health Humanities Lab (HHL)! The HHL takes an inventive interdisciplinary approach to understanding the health of populations locally and worldwide through work grounded in histories, literatures, languages, cultures, arts, media, and critical theory. The lab structure is intrinsically vertically-integrated, involving undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and community in interest-driven research projects. As Provost Kornbluth has commented, "Beyond helping to train compassionate and humanistic health care providers and providing new therapeutic interventions, the health humanities can offer us novel, interdisciplinary ways of thinking about health and what it truly means to be 'well.'"The HHL is a project of the Franklin Humanities Institute, with additional support from the Duke Global Health Institute. The Lab is jointly funded by the Duke Provost and Chancellor of Duke Health - the first such collaboration in Duke history.
