Event Details

The Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University will hold a Narrative Medicine Basic Workshop called “Race | Violence | Justice: The Need for Narrative” on April 7-9, 2017 at the Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.

 

The epidemic of gun violence and hate crimes we now suffer are among the most pressing of social issues facing health care, along with health care disparities between resourced and under-resourced groups or between majority and minority populations. Violence is a public health issue, and rigorous narrative work may reveal a path through intensely polarized positions on these issues toward a place of productive understanding.  Our signature methods of close reading, attentive listening, and perspectival respect hold out possibilities for reciprocal understanding, even in the face of deep divisions.

 

For this workshop, the Narrative Medicine faculty at Columbia will be joined by a guest faculty of scholars and artists committed to addressing racial disparities in health, safeguarding lives of young Black Americans, and representing in film and poetry the states of affairs and the possibilities for a future of equality. We have confirmed the participation of philosopher George Yancy, author of Black Bodies, White Gazes: The Continuing Significance of Race and Look, A White! Philosophical Essays on Whiteness and community psychiatrist and activist Mindy Fullilove, author of Urban Alchemy. We have invited two creative artists to complete the guest faculty.

 

For those who have already taken the Basic Narrative Medicine Workshop, the April 2017 workshop is a way to enhance their narrative skills with an entirely new set of lectures and group work focused on Race, Violence and Justice. For those coming to the Program for the first time, this workshop will fulfill the requirement needed to take Advanced Workshops in the Program.

 

We invite public health activists, community leaders, social activists, police officers, legal/philosophical scholars, nurses, therapists, physicians, dentists, chaplains, and other clinicians to extend their expertise and contribute to this conversation of pressing importance.

 

The Workshop will be held on Friday from 2p-7p, Saturday from 8:30a-5p and Sunday from 8:30a-5p.
