The 2018 Mitchell Symposium will feature Virginia Dickie, PhD, OT, FAOTA. The title of her presentation is "QUILTED: Stitching Together Theory and Practice by Studying Occupation." Dickie's background in anthropology and ethnography led her to study whole occupations and how they are a part of a larger social, economic, political, and environmental landscape. 

The Mitchell Symposium in Occupational Science is named in honor and memory of Dr. Marlys Mitchell, the founder of the master’s program in Occupational Therapy at UNC-Chapel Hill, and her husband, Earl, a great supporter of Marlys’ work (and of occupational therapy). Symposium scholars deliver a public lecture and participate in talks, discussions, and meetings with faculty, students, and researchers from throughout Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and the Department of Allied Health Sciences. Initiated in 2011, the symposium is made possible through generous gifts from friends and alumni of the division.
