‘Portraits of Patients’ Workshop

‘Portraits of Patients’ Workshop.

The research strand ‘Case Studies of Medical Portraiture’ in the Centre for the Humanities and Health at King’s College London will be holding its second workshop on Wednesday 23 May 2012 at the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, 183 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BE. The workshop will engage with ways of understanding portraiture practices as they relate to the depiction of patients by others and themselves.

Portraits of patients will be found in a variety of places and media, leading to an interrogation of the category of the patient and the nature and role of portraiture in its construction. A main priority of the workshop will be to encourage discussion of relevant objects in the Wellcome Iconographic Collections.
