CMRS Medical Humanities Conference
This conference, organized by CMRS Affiliate Dr. Sara Burdorff (Lecturer, English, UCLA), Professor Stephanie Jamison (Asian Languages and Cultures, UCLA) and Professor Olga Yokoyama (Applied Linguistics, UCLA), examines the intersections between mythology, folklore, and medicine in literature from the classical through early modern periods. Inspired by the UCLA Freshman Mythology Cluster course (GE30) and drawing on sources ranging from hagiography, Celtic and Scandinavian folklore, medieval romance, and early modern drama, this conference engages the critical interplay between medical and literary ideations of the trans-historical human experience.
