CfP: Hybrid Inclusive Approaches to the Medical Humanities Summer School Athens, May 25-28th, 2022

CIVIS network, the University of Athens, the Autonomous University of Madrid, and the University of Bucharest are pleased to announce the launch of the hybrid Inclusive Approaches to the Medical Humanities, the first CIVIS summer school on medical humanities.

Taking place in person in the ancient philosophers’ historic sites of Athens, from May 25th to May 28th, 2022, as well as online, this summer school welcomes undergraduate, Master, and PhD students from the fields of healthcare (medicine, dentistry, midwifery, nursing) and humanities (philosophy, history of medicine). Participants will learn to balance the scientific part of medicine with the humane and humanistic part of it through medical and health humanities concepts. Consequently, they will deepen the understanding of the current challenging problems within modern medical practice to enhance the doctor-patient relationship and diminish the burnout syndrome as students and future healthcare providers. 

Speakers will offer specific lectures providing examples of applied medical humanities based on their expertise and experience. The tentative list of main subjects is:

CfP: Culture and Value – 22nd Annual Dominican University College Student Conference. April 1-2, 2022

Dear friends / Chers amis,
 
The 22nd Annual Dominican University College Student Conference takes place April 1 to 2, 2022– both online, and in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We invite graduate and undergraduate students in philosophy and in theology to submit abstracts for blind review by March 20. We welcome papers that relate to the conference theme — on culture and value — understood broadly. 
 
We have assumed Ludwig Wittgenstein’s thought within our theme with the intention of using it as the groundwork for our conversation, not in a way that constrains presentations to ordinary language philosophy, much less to Wittgenstein, but that simply takes plurality, and the fact that dialogue always occurs somewhere, as the impetus for philosophy and theology and thus, for (or against) the pursuit of any universal project. Please visit CultureandValue.ca for details.
 
Le conférence annuelle des étudiant(es) du CUD aura lieu du 1er au 2 avril 2022 (en ligne et en personne, à Ottawa) Nous invitons les étudiants diplômés et de premier cycle en philosophie et en théologie à soumettre des résumés avant le 20 mars. Nous accepterons les travaux qui se rapportent au thème de la conférence – sur la culture et les valeurs – compris au sens large. Bien qu’il ne s’agisse pas d’une conférence sur Ludwig Wittgenstein, nous espérons que son travail et son héritage fourniront les bases d’une certaine clarté en ces temps étranges, et la base d’un dialogue multidisciplinaire où la reconnaissance de la pluralité est limpulsion. Veuillez visiter CultureandValue.ca/français pour en savoir plus. 
 
Best wishes / Meilleurs vœux,
 
Dominican University College Student Union [AECDO]
