Comics Workshop: Storytelling and Social Justice Concerns in Neuroethics

Friday, November 5, 2021
6:00p EDT / 22:00 UTC

Public conversations about neuroethics can be challenging, yet engagement of all stakeholders represents a key social justice concern. Comics — a narrative combination of text and image — are an especially important medium for opening lines of communication about fractious ethical questions. Comics have also proven to be an important way for historically marginalized people to tell their stories.

Led by Dr. Ann Fink, this workshop will engage participants in creative drawing exercises that broach important social justice questions and foster discussion as a group. Dr. Fink will draw on a variety of creative traditions including insights from the field of graphic medicine, which uses comics to deeply explore patient and provider health narratives.
