Plans for this are now well underway, and we have an exciting line up of papers, workshops and plenary sessions. Celebrated poet and doctor Dannie Abse will be running a session entitled ‘Poet in a White Coat’, and Jed Mercurio, author of Bodies and creator of the TV series Cardiac Arrest, will speak on the Doctor as Antihero. Professor Laurie Maguire, from Magdalen College Oxford, will explore Shakespeare’s guide to health and illness, and Matthew Alexander from North Carolina, a leading authority on the use of cinema in medical education, will begin the conference with a workshop and plenary address on this subject. Other workshops cover medicine in comics, architecture in health and photography and video of experiences in a heart and lung transplant unit. There are nearly 50 short papers accepted for presentation under themes of Dramatis personae (people), Plays and Plots (stories), and The Stage (settings and environments).
The delegate list is growing nicely, and shows that there will be representatives from throughout the UK ,as well as the Republic of Ireland, Canada, the USA and Sri Lanka. Full residential packages and day-only delegate places are still available and can be booked on-line at www.shop.le.ac.uk For a swift response to any queries please contact us the conference email address firstname.lastname@example.org
