Conversations in Italy


 

Communicating through the Arts: Lessons for Medicine and Health

 
 

A collaboration between Emory University’s College of Arts & Sciences and School of Medicine

 

As part of Emory University’s Italian Studies Summer Abroad Program, we offer opportunities for  scholars and professionals from across the disciplines to engage with our students to explore communication through the arts.  Through the processes of cultural estrangement, introspection and critical reflection, our explorations prove to be a transformative intellectual journey, challenging all to view the giving of care through the lens of the humanities. Core tenets of professionalism and the articulation of values and their application to ethical dilemmas are central to our discussions defined around three major themes: beauty, balance, harmony; death, dying, suffering; communication, compassion. 

How do the arts speak to medicine and public health? What do we discover through the journey? We invite you to join our community, explore our digital scholarship and  become  part of our ongoing conversation in Italy.
 

Arrivederci in Italia,

Professor of Pedagogy, Italian Studies

"The arts speak of beauty, harmony, and resilient themes that are unique in their ability to allow living simultaneously in the past, present, and future."
