Kelvin Smith Library is hosting a lecture from the 2018 Cleveland Humanities Festival, which explores the roles of health, health care, and medicine in culture and society from a variety of perspectives in history, literature, and the arts. In “The Arts of Dying,” Maggie Vinter, Assistant Professor in the English Department of Case Western Reserve University, will discuss the “arts of dying” – a genre of medieval and renaissance conduct manuals advising their readers on how to die well.

The Cleveland Humanities Festival is a collaborative event celebrating the great cultural institutions of the city of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio dedicated to humanistic inquiry. The Festival engages the public in addressing some of society’s most challenging issues and pressing concerns. Coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities of Case Western Reserve University, the Festival is partnering with our region’s major museums, educational institutions, and arts organizations. The 2018 Cleveland Humanities Festival will offer public programming which illuminates the role of the humanities in deepening our understanding of the complex ethical and personal questions that arise when the subject is health.
