Thursday, November 17 | 12-1pm | Perkins 218 | Light lunch served at 11:45. Please RSVP to writingprogram@duke.edu

Medical education in the US has increasingly found the humanities relevant to training more effective and empathetic doctors.  Narrative medicine and creative writing expand physicians’ writing skills and invite them to explore the humanity in their practice. Is there a similar value for introducing the humanities to Global Health?  Join us for a conversation with Kelley Swain, award-winning writer/poet and contributing writer to the Lancet, as she talks about her work at the crossroads of poetry and science.

Screen/Society--Reel Women Directors of the Middle-East [Turkey]--"Mustang"

White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Film Screening: "Mustang" (Deniz Gamze Ergüven, 2015, 97 min, France/Germany/Turkey, in Turkish w/ English subtitles, Color, Blu-Ray) / Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls' family. The family overreacts, removing all "instruments of corruption," like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives in Deniz Gamze Ergüven's debut, a powerful portrait of female empowerment. /-- Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year in Academy Awards (2016)! /-- Nominee for Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language in Golden Globes (2016)! /-- Winner of 6 César Awards (2016)! / "Raw, funny and incredibly moving." - Cath Clarke, Time Out / "Ergüven isn't peddling blind optimism so much as a realism animated by the belief that freedom-far from being inevitable-must be fought for. That it will be fought for." -- Lenika Cruz, The Atlantic / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU9JAN8LtIk

Screen/Society--Reel Women Directors of the Middle-East [Algeria]--"Rachida"

White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Film Screening: "Rachida" (Yamina Bachir-Chouikh, 2002, 100 min, Algeria & France, in French and Arabic w/ English subtitles, Color, DVD) / The first full-length feature film by Yamina Bachir evokes memories of the worst atrocities of the terror in Algeria. The young teacher Rachida is teaching at a school in Algiers, when she is stopped in the street by a group of youths who demand she take a bomb and place it in the school. She recognizes one of the terrorists and refuses. Then she is cold-bloodedly shot and left for dead. Miraculously, she survives. To recover, she hides with her mother in a village far from the city. But terrorism is unavoidable there too. There are no safe havens in Algeria. "Rachida" is a moving story about a community - and above all about the women in it - under the threat of terror. It's a world where you can be kidnapped, raped, shot, where an unmarried woman with a scar on her belly can't go to a bathhouse, because people might think she has had a Caesarean. / -- Winner of 8 Film Awards! / "Bachir-Chouikh stitches a story with few frills: there are brave women, cowardly men, the pervading beauty of nature and a climate of fear." - New York Times / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTRkXDH6uoo
