Images of Care and Dying with Drs Stephen Barclay and Steven Eastwood
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 third evening of the series will feature Dr Stephen Barclay (University of Cambridge), University Senior Lecturer in General Practice and Palliative Care, General Practitioner and Honorary Consultant Physician in Palliative Care, and Dr Steven Eastwood, Reader in Film Practice, Convenor, MA Film Studies (Queen Mary, University of London). Dr Barclay will explore the challenges and rewards of academic and clinical palliative care and Dr Eastwood will discuss his current film project, The Interval and the Instant: Inscribing Death and Dying, made with the involvement and oversight of palliative care professionals at Earl Mountbatten Hospice (Isle of Wight).
