The Drawing Together community again convened on Sunday, December 18. Our session was led by Dr. Ann Fink (she/they), a neuroscientist, educator, ethicist, artist, and psychotherapist in training. They received a PhD in Neuroscience from UCLA, and their publications on the neurobiology of memory, emotion and mental health have appeared in the Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neurophysiology, PNAS, AJOB Neuroscience, and other journals. Ann’s interdisciplinary work addresses the ethics of neuroscience in relation to identity, mental health, and social justice. Ann uses comics in scholarly writing and teaching and enjoys working within the Graphic Medicine community. She was previously a Wittig Fellow in Feminist Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, faculty in Biological Sciences and the College of Education at Lehigh University, and is now in training at the Rutgers School of Social Work.

Ann started with introducing us to her work via her Neuroethics Blog. They discussed feminist neuroethics, graphic neuroethics, and other projects.
The session did not get recorded, unfortunately, but Ann’s wonderful slides will guide us through the exercises.
If you would like to share your work on social media, use the #DrawingTogetherGM so we can find it. See you next month!
