Conference Report: Media Medica

How has the hospital note changed from being handwritten on paper to typed on a computer? Is it possible to perform talk therapy with a video camera? Do external devices remind wearers to enact healthful behaviors or enable them to forget? These are some of the questions raised at the Media Medica: Medicine & the Challenge of New Media conference held at Johns Hopkins October 27-28, 2017. Jeremy Greene and Gianna Pomata organized this international meeting to explore the triangulation of media, genre, and technology.

Interdisciplinary Colloquium in Medicine & Humanities (Tel Aviv University, 2017-8)

Interdisciplinary Colloquium in Medicine & Humanities

Medicine and Humanities share a common subject of research – the human subject. The basic and fundamental difference is the methodologies and research strategies that sometimes lead to different or similar conclusions. In the Colloquium, we will examine how the two disciplines approach issues and problems, ask if their conclusions are alike, and how the differences can contribute to richer, more efficient and more accurate outcomes.
