The Literature, Medicine, and Culture Colloquium is an informal working group of graduate students (along with faculty, librarians, and a few undergrads) who meet monthly to talk about all things LMC. In the past, we’ve met to workshop conference papers or other works-in-progress, discuss shared readings, and review journal articles. LMCC is a growing, energized organization for grad students in English and beyond. Drawing on a diverse array of personal and disciplinary perspectives, LMCC participants explore medical narratives, popular and professional health discourses, and other topics in the health humanities.
