Pamela Brett-MacLean is Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Director of the Arts and Humanities in Health and Medicine program in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. Lianne McTavish is Professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta. She specializes in early modern visual culture, critical museum theory, and the history of the body.
