CHCI Health and Medical Humanities - ”Space, Place and Design in the Medical and Health Humanities”
University of Southern Denmark looks forward to welcome you to our exciting Summer Institute in Odense - June 24-26 - Space, Place and Design in the Medical and Health Humanities. The objective of this CHCI Summer Institute is to investigate how space, place, and design might interplay with individualized and compassionate health care. Space, along with its less abstract and more social corollary, place, are critical terms in the formal study of literature; meanwhile, the architectural concept design has newly entered a broader disciplinary lexicon to simultaneously suggest method, process and form. We want to consider the role that space, place and design play in health care and aesthetics.
There will be two days of conference presentations, with an optional journey on the third day to the Slagelse psychiatric hospital with a guided tour by the architect. Friday evening there will be an optional dinner. The conference venue is at Studenterhuset in the center of Odense.
