Dunedin Public Art Gallery

Dr David Galler (author of Things That Matter: Stories of Life and Death) has said he learnt more about people and life from the artists, poets, and English Department cohort that he drank beer with at Dunedin’s Captain Cook Tavern than he did in his medical degree training. We’re bringing him back to his old stomping ground to talk about what literature can do for medicine with Glenn Colquhoun (doctor, poet and one of the founders, alongside David, of the Medicine Stories Project) and Sue Wootton (poet, novelist and co-editor of medical humanities blog Corpus: Conversations about Medicine and Life). Barbara Brookes (co-editor of Corpus) will chair the session.
