Flash(y) Bioethics – MA Student Edition!

The MA Faculty introduces the Montgomery Lecture Series with a Faculty “Flash(y)” lecture every fall, and this is a variation on that theme.  For this Montgomery Lecture six of our MA students are going to explore a topic they (literally) drew out of a hat in a pithy 5 minutes or less! Come cheer them on as they tackle this challenge, and engage you with a sampling of the diversity of issues engaged by the medical humanities and bioethics.

Doing Good?

A few international PHARMA-sponsored “charitable access programs” provide free treatment for rare diseases for patients in the developing world.  Generally speaking, this treatment costs hundreds of thousands of dollars per patient per year in the industrialized world.  As the (volunteer) ethicist for the largest of these programs (over 225 current patients receiving treatment around the globe), I struggle with moral justifications for what we are doing.  This session will describe the program and the associated ethical issues.

Pain Studies:
A Reading and Conversation With Author Lisa Olstein


In this extended lyric essay, a poet mines her lifelong experience with migraine to deliver a marvelously idiosyncratic cultural history of pain—how we experience, express, treat, and mistreat it. Her sources range from the trial of Joan of Arc to the essays of Virginia Woolf and Elaine Scarry to Hugh Laurie’s portrayal of Gregory House on House M.D. As she engages with science, philosophy, visual art, rock lyrics, and field notes from her own medical adventures (both mainstream and alternative), she finds a way to express the often-indescribable experience of living with pain. Eschewing simple epiphanies, Olstein instead gives us a new language to contemplate and empathize with a fundamental aspect of the human condition.
