What is the Contribution of Care Ethics to Medical Humanities?
Dr. Merel Visse

Dr. Merel Visse

Dr. Visse is associate professor of Care Ethics at the University for Humanistic Studies in The Netherlands. Her work focuses on the encounter of aesthetics, ethics and politics. Her research, writings and lectures are a combination of artistic, literary and philosophical practice. Her work focuses on how everyday experiences of people relate to the abstract conceptions of institutions and society. She says, ā€œIā€™m interested in what dwells beyond our language too: the mysterious, unknown and unsayable. My work is grounded in the interdisciplinary field of care ethics and I have expertise in phenomenology, arts-based inquiry, narrative inquiry and responsive evaluation.ā€ Visse received her PhD in the humanities from the VU University of Amsterdam.
