SAWYER SEMINAR LOOKING, LISTENING, AND REFLECTING: ENGAGING WITH ART AND IMAGES THAT SPEAK TO THE MEDICAL HUMANITIES

1PM – 3PM

Guided by facilitators Dr. Kamna Balhara, Shari Tishman, and Corinne Zimmerman, participants in this two-part workshop will engage in deep observation, listening, and metacognitive reflection — all grounded in historical and contemporary images that can help reveal the ways we observe, construct narratives, and make judgments about the bodies of others. The workshop is open to practitioners from all disciplines with any level of familiarity with its themes. A primary goal is to offer participants inquiry-based observational strategies that they can use in diverse contexts of teaching and learning, within and beyond the themes of the Chronic Conditions seminar.
