Health and Humanities: How the Arts Deepen our Reflection on the Holocaust and Enable Healing
November 8, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Allan Peterkin and Dr. Ronald Ruskin, founding editors of Ars Medica, discuss how the visual, literary and cinematic arts have captured pivotal moments in human history.
This session will provide examples of visual art, poetry and video testimony that maintain their power now and encourage us to ask what representations of the Holocaust will become, as the living voices of survivors disappear.
Ars Medica is a biannual literary journal which explores the interface between the arts and healing. Dr. Peterkin is the Director of the Health Arts and Humanities Program which promotes a deeper understanding of health, illness, suffering, disability through a variety of artistic media.
