Global Health, Writing, and the Humanities: A conversation with Kelley Swain, artist-in-residence. Thompson Writing Program's Director of Outreach Jennifer Ahern-Dodson talks with working writers across disciplines about their writing lives. 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. A light lunch will be served at 11:45. Please RSVP to writingprogram@duke.edu

Ciompi Quartet Lunchtime Classics

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2016-11-16 17:00
Rubenstein 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

In this free noontime event, one piece of chamber music will be performed by the Ciompi Quartet, accompanied by a short introduction that gives insight into the shape and brilliance of some of the canonical works of classical music.

The Ciompi Quartet was founded at Duke University in 1965 by the renowned Italian violinist Giorgio Ciompi. All its members are professors at Duke and play a leading role in its cultural life, in addition to traveling widely throughout the year for performances. In a career that includes many hundreds of concerts and spans five continents, the Ciompi Quartet has developed a reputation for performances of real intelligence and musical sophistication, and for a warm, unified sound that is enhanced by each player's strong individual voice. With a maturity and insight born of wide experience, the Ciompi Quartet projects the heart and soul of the music, in a repertoire that ranges from well-known masterpieces to works by today's most communicative composers.
