‘House of Joshua’ author to deliver Elizabeth Blackwell Day Lecture at SUNY Upstate Feb. 18
Mindy Thompson Fullilove, M.D., author of “The House of Joshua: Meditations on Family and Place,” will present the Elizabeth Blackwell Day Lecture at SUNY Upstate Medical University Wednesday, Feb. 18, at noon in the Weiskotten Hall Medical Alumni Auditorium, 766 Irving Avenue, Syracuse. The lecture is free and open to the public.
In “The House of Joshua,” Fullilove presents a collection of essays reflecting numerous aspects of her life. More than memoir, the essays are an exploration of the psychological importance of place in the life of an individual, a study of how the actual places–houses, streets, schools, rooms–shape an individual’s worldview and self perception.
A professor of clinical psychiatry and public health at Columbia University and a research psychiatrist at New York Psychiatric Institute, Fullilove has been studying the problems of HIV/AIDS in minority communities in the United States since 1986. Concentrating on the AIDS risk behaviors in communities that were characterized by population displacement, she began to study the psychology of place which involves issues of displacement and upheaval, from housing resettlement in Harlem and violence in Washington Heights to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall.
