Humanities, Health, and Medicine Lecture Series


The University of Texas Humanities Institute and Dell Medical School are excited to announce the Humanities, Health, and Medicine Lecture Series. This new collaboration will bring prominent writers, clinicians, and researchers to campus to explore humanistic approaches to health and medicine. Along with other co-sponsored HI and DMS initiatives, including our MD/MA dual-degree program in Humanities, Health, and Medicine, the Humanities, Health, and Medicine Lecture Series will sustain and expand intellectual community among students, faculty, and community members interested in intersections among health, medicine, the humanities, and the arts. The public speaker series is supported by a generous gift from Jill Hall and Sterling Smith, as well as by the Mossiker Chair in the Humanities, Dell Medical School, and the College of Liberal Arts.
