TLRH | Medical and Health Humanities | Ageing and Cinema

A seminar by Amir Cohen-Shalev, University of Haifa as part of the Medical and Health Humanities Lunchtime Seminar Series in association with Trinity Long Room Hub. Prof Shalev has written widely on ageing through cinema and literature, including a seminal book, Visions of Aging, in 2009.

The Trinity College Dublin Medical and Health Humanities Initiative brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines including history, philosophy, sociology, drama, health sciences, religion, cultural studies, arts, literature and languages.

Medical and health humanities seeks to provide insights into the cultural and social contexts within which diverse but interrelated concerns such as the human condition, the individual experience of illness and suffering, and the way medicine is (or was) practiced, might be understood.

The Trinity College Dublin Medical and Health Humanities initiative seeks to cultivate a richer understanding of the interactions and synergies between practices and discourses of wellness, health or medicine and the arts, humanities or culture through interdisciplinary research and education.
