It aims to promote an encounter between nationally and internationally renowned experts, students and professionals in areas such as healthcare, humanities, and social sciences who are interested in this emerging interdisciplinary field. Its main goal is to maximize the potential offered by the humanities, namely by literary methodologies and devices, in humanizing the relationship between care providers and patients, fostering self-knowledge and other-awareness and seeking an overall improvement in healthcare.
Flash Workshop: How to Brainstorm on a Poem
On May 13th, Tuesday, from 3 to 4 p.m., in room 5.2, WILL Lab’s team will be conducting a flash workshop on several fundamental brainstorming techniques (mind mapping and freewriting). By using William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Red Wheelbarrow” as a starting point, we hope to provide all participants with useful knowledge, easily appliable during the process of writing. All University of Lisbon’s students, who wish to work on creative strategies for generating ideas for a text, are welcome.
