Images of Care and Dying with Claire Henry and Prof Sarah Cooper
The Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), along with the University of Cambridge’s Departments of Public Health and Primary Care, and Modern and Medieval Languages, present a series of five seminars taking place in Cambridge in 2016 and 2017. The events will explore the difficult feelings and dilemmas presented by end of life care that are felt in the lived experiences of clinicians through multidisciplinary dialogues.
The fourth evening of the series will feature Claire Henry, Chief Executive of the National Council for Palliative Care and Sarah Cooper, Professor of Film Studies at King's College London. Claire will explore how we can encourage public conversations about the end of life and Prof Cooper will examine questions about the end of life, ethics and the imagination, with reference to the film The Heart of a Dog (Laurie Anderson, 2015).
