In this week’s Graphic Medicine Podcast, Carol Tyler’s keynote address from the Graphic Medicine 2015 conference in Riverside, California. The talk is titled, “Bringing It All Back Home.”
With this being the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., I thought it would be a great tie-in to post Carol’s talk in conjunction with the Great Thanksgiving Listen. Here’s a video about that project from StoryCorps:
Carol Tyler’s monumental book, Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father was released this week. The process which led to the creation of this book was a monumental act of intense listening, intense caregiving, and intense cartooning. She details it in this keynote address.
Next week on the podcast: an interview with Peter Dunlap-Shohl, creator of My Degeneration: A Journey Through Parkinson’s, new from Penn State University Press.
Support for the Graphic Medicine Podcast comes from Penn State College of Medicine, Department of Humanites, the nation’s oldest Humanities department within a medical school. For more info, go to www2.med.psu.edu/humanities.
