In this seminar we will read, discuss, and create informal drawings and graphic narratives (comics) on the themes of illness, medicine, caregiving, and health care. We will use drawing as a way to think about the medical encounter from various perspectives. You will be expected to complete brief reading/listening/drawing assignments, participate in drawing exercises, and present a graphic novel (will be provided) to the class.
