  • Chiasmi 2020 seeks to explore the entanglement between medicine and
    the humanities evident throughout Italian history and literature. What
    role has artistic production played in the development of medical
    knowledge, and what insights can the humanistic sciences offer into
    society’s experience with sickness, health, and the relationship
    between patients and their doctors? They are questions all the more
    pressing in the midst of this year’s global health emergency. In addition to four panels, the conference will feature keynote addresses by Prof. Lucia Dacome of the University of Toronto (October 23) and Prof. Anne Hudson Jones of the University of Texas (October 30). To better facilitate discussion, panelist papers
    will be pre-circulated this year, so interested attendees should write
    to [email protected] to request a reading packet.
