Event Description

The crises of individual bodies and the body politic expose systemic weaknesses and vulnerabilities, requiring us to discover new strengths and resources to avert disaster. Such has been the case with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, which has starkly revealed systemic and long-standing issues in our capacity to care for one another—quite literally in the strain on our healthcare systems and metaphorically in our failure to collectively address a deadly threat to our families and communities.

Recognizing that healthcare is predicated on human beings caring for other human beings, A Crisis of Caring: The Humanities and Our Health will explore how humanistic approaches can help identify the symptoms and causes of our malaise while guiding us toward a healthier, more caring future.
