Description

PKU-UCL Cross-Cultural Medical Humanities

Conference/workshop: Self-Care in a Digital World

November 7–9 2016, UCL Institute of Advanced Studies, Common Ground, Ground Floor, South Wing, Wilkins Building, UCL

This is the second major event in a project that brings together Peking University (PKU ) and UCL researchers working in the Medical Humanities.

Together we are building a new cross-cultural research platform to explore the potential for digital solutions to some of the most challenging health issues facing us all in the twenty-first century.

Over the course of this 3-day workshop event, medical historians, anthropologists and global health specialists, in dialogue with film, social media and digital humanities experts, will showcase histories and cultures of Self-Reflection, Auto-Practices and Practices of the Imagination in the promotion of longevity and/or well-being. Using historical and culturally adaptive approaches, we will consider the advantages and disadvantages of new visual and digital technologies in therapy and in the delivery of high priority health messages to different communities around the world.
