Our lives as clinicians, patients, or other participants in healthcare are riddled with text. In this surplus of language, what forms of language are crowded out or unspoken? What do we censor as “improper” for the written record – and why, and how can we reclaim these lost realms of affect and experience? In this talk, Laura Kolbe will read from her new poetry collection Little Pharma and discuss “experimental entanglements” between art-making and the practice of care, focusing on the productive tension between the ways we use language as clinicians, as poets, and in other shifting roles.

Medical Center Hour is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, see Center for Health Humanities and Ethics: https://med.virginia.edu/biomedical-ethics/medical-center-hour/
