About the Event
Come join the growing community of folks across campus interested in intersections between health and the humanities.
The Health & Humanities Research Seminar Series (HHRS) is a collaboration between The University of Texas at Austin Humanities Institute and Dell Medical School. The first seminar features Phillip Barrish, Ph.D., discussing his research on “Literature, Social Justice and the Health Care System.” Barrish is associate director for health and humanities at the Humanities Institute, Tony Hilfer Professor of American and British Literature in the UT Austin Department of English and courtesy professor of medical education at Dell Medical School.
The HHRS format consists of a 30-minute presentation by the speaker followed by a half-hour of group discussion and then another half-hour of socializing over appetizers. Seating for each seminar is limited and requires advance reservation. Please RSVP to request a seat. Questions about the seminars may be emailed to Humanities Institute program coordinator Kathryn North.
