The right to health/madness in society
G6 Lecture Theatre |
UCL Institute of Archaeology
31–34 Gordon Square | London | WC1 | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Health humanities explore the place of health and illness in society, and how the humanities and social sciences may be brought to bear on biomedicine, clinical practice, the politics of health care, and the portrayal of health and illness in literature, film and contemporary culture.
This session will explore two key sets of issues relating to health in modern society, firstly: ethical and political questions about the role of the state in protecting and promoting health. We will also consider how historical conceptions and practices of madness and psycho-emotional disorder shape contemporary notions of well-being and identity.
