Established in 2011, the Medical Narratives Colloquium at University of California, Riverside is a multi-disciplinary group of scholars with interests in the intersections of humanities and medicine. Based in the College of Humanities and Social Science, participants explore issues of pain and transcendence through a range of discourses and applications. In addition to regular theoretical and research-based discussions, the Medical Narratives group orchestrates conversation with visiting scholars from wide-reaching specialties with critical, current insights into health, care, technology, power, and much more. In workshops and debates, we collectively explore the ever-changing face of medicine and the elements of story and narrative that speak to experiences of illness, wellness, treatment, and healing.
