The School of Liberal Arts and the Medical School at Indiana University (Indianapolis) are sponsoring a two-day symposium on “Cancer Stories,” November 6-8, 2008. It is organized around the premise that narratives about cancer have shaped the human and institutional response to cancer in America. We welcome both the presentation of scholarship, poetry, performance, and visual arts production of cancer stories by scholars, physicians, nurses, patients, artists, and advocates to explore how the cultural meaning of cancer has shaped the human and institutional response to it. Please send electronic proposals for panels, workshops or roundtables, and individual papers to Judi Izuka Campbell, Medical Humanities Program, firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 May 2008. Please observe a 1,000-word limit for panel proposals, 500 for workshops or roundtables, and 350 for individual papers. Proposals should include the title of the presentation(s) and proposers’ complete contact details.
