The Art of Medicine in Iberian and Latin American Literature and Film

El arte de la medicina en la literatura y el cine iberoamericanos. Esta conferencia, organizada conjuntamente por los departamentos de Literatura Comparada (Dra. Patricia Novillo-Corvalán) y de Estudios Hispánicos (Dr. William Rowlandson) de la Universidad de Kent, y patrocinada por el Wellcome Trust, ofrece la oportunidad única de anatomizar una nueva área interdisciplinaria de la investigación a través del arte, la literatura y el cine de la Península Ibérica y de América Latina.

The recent development of a discipline of Medical Humanities has led to the creation of an interdisciplinary site able to defy academic compartmentalisation and to foster productive in-between spaces across the sciences and the humanities. Medical practitioners are valiantly trespassing the science divide to enter an alluring arts/literature territory, whilst humanities scholars have become increasingly aware of the cultural/medical contexts which inform an array of literary works. It appears that equal rights to the human body have been claimed by both physicians within the sanitised environment of the laboratory and the hospital, and by the literary scholar eager to strip, dissect, and anatomise the body on the bare page. This interest in the art of healing runs through the bloodstream and the psyche of Iberian and Latin American literature and film.
