Marrs delivers inaugural humanities lecture

Dr. Ralph Didlake, professor of surgery and director of the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities, presents a framed poster designed around a photograph taken by Eudora Welty to Dr. Suzanne Marrs, professor and Welty Foundation Scholar-in-Residence at Millsaps College, March 18.

An internationally recognized Welty scholar and biographer, Marrs delivered the inaugural Humanities in Medicine lecture discussing medical and diagnostic motifs in Welty's works, "A Worn Path," "The Demonstrators" and "Where Is the Voice Coming From?" During her talk, Marrs delved into Welty's portrayal of characters, their illnesses, the contexts of those illnesses and the potential for intervention and advocacy.

The program was sponsored by the Center for Bioethics, Millsaps College and the Mississippi Humanities Council.
