As part of the Creative Innovation Across Disciplines: Art and Design Visiting Speaker Seminar Series, Professor Roger Kneebone, Professor of Surgical Education and Engagement Science, Imperial College London, presents: 'Crossing Boundaries'.

AbstractThis session explores surgery as a site of performance and craftsmanship as well as the application of scientific knowledge. Based on extended collaborations with musicians, magicians, puppeteers and craftsmen, Roger identifies parallels between apparently unconnected domains of expert practice. Much of Roger’s work uses simulation as a means to communicate what words alone cannot capture. Vivid scenarios invite the public to experience the world of surgery, taking part in operations performed by actual surgeons and their teams. By viewing clinical practice through these unorthodox lenses, Roger presents open avenues for cross-disciplinary research and exploration, proposing that engagement through simulation can challenge our assumptions and lead to ‘reciprocal illumination’ for all who take part.
