The confluence of the research on the visual representation of pain and grief by Montse Morcate and Rebeca Pardo is the origin of an academic collaboration that has been developed in the last years at the University of Barcelona (Universitat de Barcelona) and the International University of Catalonia in which we teach photography.
The origin of this blog was the project “Sharing pain and grief online: the self-referential digital image of illness and death as a means of destigmatization, connection, visibilization and co-presence” funded by a BBVA Foundation Grant for Research Teams in the Area of Digital Humanities. After that, we have had other projects that you can see in our research webpage.
Our projects are interdisciplinary and international, counts with the participation of other researchers, with contributions by other scholars, and focuses on the visual representation of illness, grief and death in the fields of visual culture and medical/health humanities.
This blog started with the intention of sharing the results of our projects. For more information:
