2013 Medical Examinations Conference

Emerging from conversations held in the UCR Medical Narratives Colloquium, this conference facilities diverse approaches to disease and a multitude of imaginaries that come with suffering and health seeking. From the social condemnation of disease to bodily and psychological manifestations, states of illness and pain invite a certain weaving in, out, and through various states of telling, silencing, denying, and confronting. Emergent forms of care and community are investigated through a range of genres and embrace a variety of topics from therapy to isolation. This conference invites and celebrates multiplicity and morphing forms as a venue for scholars, practitioners, artists, and community members to be in a dialogue through an array of media. With graphic novels, illustrations, research forums, paper presentations, performances, and an original play on Saturday evening, this coming together of expressions and interrogations promises deeply creative and highly engaging examinations of medical encounters.
