Recap of class one:
The course takeaway/goal is to RECLAIM USE OF YOUR VISUAL LANGUAGE AS A WAY INTO MEDICINE AND THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING A CAREGIVER AND A PATIENT.
In class we watched, Sayantani DasGupta’s STORIES ARE GOOD MEDICINE.
The takeaway points from this lecture were:
- STORIES ARE GOOD MEDICINE – goal is to be able to read a patient’s story as well as her radiograph.
- STORIES ARE RELATIONAL
- THERE IS “STORY TRUTH” – SOMETIMES DIFFERS FROM FACTUAL TRUTH
- STORIES ARE NOT FIXED.
In preparation for our first class, you watched Lynda Barry’s video: WHAT IS AN IMAGE. Here are the salient points from that video:
