The Maine Humanities Council in the States are hosting a conference on 12-13 November 2010. It's aimed at health care professionals and focuses on ways that the humanities can help them better understand the long term effects of trauma of all kinds on their patients, and on themselves. There will be storytelling, theatre performances, reading & discussing literature, discussion of film, graphic novels, and writing represented in the workshops and plenary sessions.
Sounds fabulous, wish I could go. More details here.
