UCSF Laurel Heights Campus 3333 California St., Room 474, San Francisco, CA

Keynote at Humanities Futures Capstone Conference, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina

Rubenstein Library, Duke West Campus 411 Chapel Dr., Room 153, Durham, NC

The capstone conference, titled Health Humanities & Social Justice: Breath, Body, Voice, will focus on the health humanities.

Furthermore, in 2017, we ask: how are the humanities transforming health, and how is health transforming the humanities? And what do these mutual influences suggest concerning the health of the humanities?
