Narrative Medicine: A Films & Comix Series

Find out why medical students and practitioners are turning to the humanities (especially narrative studies of literature, film, and comix), and see how the arts and humanities have often honed in on stories of patients, doctors, and other health care practitioners. This series of screenings and events illuminates an exciting new “narrative medicine” movement based on the premise that narrative competence enhances medical competence even as medical experiences reshape narrative forms. The series complements a two-day multidisciplinary conference.

Join David Small as he discusses his award-winning graphic novel Stitches (2009), a harrowing memoir of the botched childhood surgery that left him virtually mute. Stitches follows Small’s journey from the upsetting circumstances that necessitated the surgery, through adolescent hell, to the unbelievable recovery he achieved through his art. Jared Gardner, a professor of English and film studies at Ohio State, joins Small for the conversation.
