Health Humanities and Arts Research

The Commons works with researchers across disciplines to build collaborations around Health. Beginning in Summer 2020, the Health Humanities and Arts Research Collaborative

The Collaborative is based out of The Commons, directed by Emily Ryan (eryan@ku.edu). The initiative is a collaboration by Tamara Falicov, Associate Dean for Research, Arts and Humanities, College Dean’s office; Katie Rhine, Geography & Atmospheric Science and African & African-American Studies; and Teri Kennedy, Associate Dean, Interprofessional Practice, Education, Policy, and Research, KU School of Nursing, KU Medical Center.

Goals:

  • Create connections across professionals and among researchers around affinities within the realm of health and wellness;
  • Connect researchers to funding opportunities around health and wellness; and
  • Offer a platform for collaboration around existing and emerging health-related challenges.

Meetings:

This collaborative meets as a large group once per month, and smaller topic-specific discussions meet more regularly.
