Medical humanities has positioned itself at the crossroads of digital humanities, the arts, and medical ethics. This session will explore some renowned medical humanities projects from the National Library of Medicine. These projects include: The Visible Human Project, Turning the Pages, and Native Voices.
The session will primarily focus on the Native Voices exhibit. This exhibit centers on Native Peoples’ concepts of health and wellness. Native Voices features interactive timelines, interviews, lesson plans, and multimedia games and activities.
In 2018, the Native Voices exhibit will travel to UC and be temporarily installed in the UC Health Sciences Library and Winkler Center. Feedback and ideas generated at this THATCamp session will be shared with the committee that is preparing for the arrival of the Native Voices exhibit.
