Students Showcase Research and Creativity at the Medical Humanities Fair

June 7, 2019
The Medical Humanities Fair took place on May 13 in the Rotunda, Chancellor Green.

Students from the course ANT/HUM 240: Medical Anthropology, showcased their final community-based research and artistic projects at the Medical Humanities Fair on May 13. The course draws from medical anthropological approaches in dialogue with history, journalism, literature, philosophy, religion, film, and visual arts to understand the cross-cultural significance of medicine and present-day struggles for wellbeing in the United States. Sixty students showcased their research findings and insights with Princeton faculty, students, and community partners.

Community partners for this project were Mental Health Alliance, Gente y Cuentos / People and Stories, Arts Council of Princeton, Send Hunger Packing Princeton (SHUPP), University Health Center, Office of the Architect, New Jersey Council for the Humanities, Housing Initiative of Princeton (HIP), Hyacinth AIDS Foundation, and Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS).

The Medical Humanities Fair was presented by the Department of Anthropology together with the Humanities Council, the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship, and the Pace Center for Civic Engagement.
