The Center for Health Humanities and Ethics continues UVA’s tradition, dating from the late 1960s, of exploring and teaching about the human complexities of illness, health, and health care, the interactions of medicine and society, and the values dimensions of biomedical research and policymaking. Our work, much of it collaborative and crossing professional lines, draws on methods and materials of humanities disciplines such as literature and language, history, law, philosophy, and religion—as well as the social sciences and the arts. Our center’s activities chart a longtime commitment to the productive integration of biomedical ethics and humanities and to forging new modes of interdisciplinary inquiry.
