Event at NYU: Remote Care: From the “Electronic Patient” to Self-Tracking

October 9, 2018
NYU Center for the Humanities

Registration: https://nyuhumanities.org/events/event-registration/?ee=151

Practices of care and intervention—whether medical or psychological— have been rich in specialized communications between clinicians and patients and clinicians and clinicians, across many historical periods. The meanings and uses of these communications, however, have shifted with the development of new media and new technologies, which allow these communications to happen at a distance. This panel will consider technological interventions and augmentations of remote care, from the “Electronic Patient” and tele-medicine to self-tracking apps. By considering the media and technology intertwined with scenes of care, panelists will explore how changes in these kinds of communications relate to changes in the practice of care. Panelists include:

Jeremy Greene
Professor of Medicine and the History of Medicine,
Elizabeth Treide and A. McGehee Harvey Chair in the History of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University

Natasha Schull
Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication, NYU

Kelli Moore
Assistant Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication, NYU

Hannah Zeavin
Lecturer, Department of English, UC Berkeley

Moderated by Lisa Gitelman, Professor of Media and English, NYU.
