  • ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)
    "Why Narrative Matters in Global Health Research and Education" Louise Penner, PhD Associate Professor of English University of Massachusetts - Boston Monday, April 23 | 5pm ZSR Library Auditorium Respondent: Aimee Mepham, Assistant Director, WFU Humanities Institute Sponsored by the Center for Bioethics, Health & Society, the Humanities Institute, with support made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the WFU Department of English. How does attending to the structures, styles, and explicit or implicit arguments of narratives impact the ways that global health research might be taught and practiced in the twenty-first century? How does training in the many features of narrative analysis and theory add to the global health practitioner’s ability to observe and respond to public health challenges in social, cultural, and economic contexts often quite different to the practitioner’s own? Louise Penner's lecture draws from examinations of literary texts, narrative theory, and qualitative data drawn from ten years of teaching an interdisciplinary course in global health to argue for the centrality of the study of narrative to the field of global health.
