The Warburg Institute Literature, Ideas and Society Seminar Series presents

The Medicinal Power of Reading
9 February 2011, 5.15 at the Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London

with Vivian Nutton (University College London, The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine) and Angus Gowland
(University College London, History Department)

The aim of this seminar series, to be held at the Warburg Institute, is to advance research in literary studies, firstly, by exploring the connections between literature and other disciplines such as philosophy, theology, medicine and law, and, secondly, by situating literature in its social context—in relationship to politics, commerce, and both scientific and artistic endeavour. The seminars will be held once a term (three times per year), at 5:15 at the Warburg Institute in Woburn Square. Each session will consist of two thirty-minute papers, followed by a formal discussion and an informal reception. Download the programme here.

Dear Sirs, I am so interested in written information about The Medicinal Power of Reading. I am currently a professor of English at the UNEY University in San Felipe, Yaracuy (in Venezuela) and this material would be of so much help for investigations on the power of reading both for teachers and students.
Thank you so much for such interesting topics to enhance the power of study and reading.
