Why this Symposium?

The international symposium organised by the NIAS Consciousness Studies Programme of the National Institute of Advanced Studies (Bangalore, India) will facilitate discussions across disciplines that would respond to the healthcare challenges and examine the peripheries that are unnoticed such as indigenous healing, indigenous cultures, bioethics, compassionate care, etc. through the lenses of literature, medical anthropology, media, arts and ritual performances, culture and religion, philosophy of health, neuropsychiatry, and neuroscience. One of the goals of the international symposium is to help develop a pedagogy of medical humanities that employs epistemologies and philosophies of a large number of disciplines from humanities, social sciences and the arts. The inclusivity and diversity in the knowledge contributed by such a pedagogy are expected to help the practitioners of modern mainstream biomedicine to perceive the human individual, life and living, health and wellbeing,  as complex phenomena that are interrelated and interdependent and influenced by human agencies and subjectivities that are varied, plural, and embodied with a self that seeks transformation and long term flourishing.
