Digital Humanity in Health Seminar Series

Venue: FutureLabs, Leeds LS2 7LY

Sorry, this event has now ended.

The Digital Humanity in Health and Care seminar series is brought to you by mHabitat in partnership with the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds. Curated by Dr Victoria Betton and Dr Helen Thornham, the three seminars bring people accessing health and care services, practitioners, policy makers and academics together to consider contemporary dilemmas around ethics, morals and humanity which may not always get the attention they deserve in the rush to adopt digitally enabled health and social care.

The seminar series is driven by three overarching questions:
What does digital humanity look like? And what does it look like in relation to health and care and in relation to the axes below of policy, leadership and citizenship?
Where is digital humanity in health and care? Is it, and could it be in systems? If it is in the human, then is this enough in a changing landscape?
How can we be digitally humane? What everyday, digital, connective or community actions or reflections can we make or do?

Each seminar will begin with a provocation co-presented by a practitioner and an academic expert in the field. A case study will then be used to apply these insights into an everyday scenario. Each seminar will produce a summary paper which will be published on the mHabitat website.
