This course explores how different crises related to health and well-being are represented in a number of captivating, current, and thought-provoking films. Such representations offer a unique opportunity to discuss and discern how we act as individuals in a situation of crisis, and how culture and society respond to crises of health and well-being.

The films and the questions they raise are studied from an interdisciplinary point of view—aside from teachers from Film Studies/the Faculty of Humanities, the course features teachers from the faculties of Law, Medicine, and Fine and Performing Arts. Indeed, a crucial point of the course is to show how perspectives and approaches from different disciplines complement and enrich each other, and how an interdisciplinary approach is crucial in order to reach a nuanced and deep understanding of how health and well-being are represented in film and other media and otherwise affect culture and society.

Aesthetics of Crisis: Health and Well-being is intended for anyone who wishes to gain a new and deeper understanding of questions that concern crisis, culture, film, and society, but the course could be of particular value to those who have work-related, civic, or other experiences that relate specifically to issues of health and well-being. This Autumn, 2023, the course will be held during the months of November and December, in English, with seminars/lectures mainly on Mondays, at 4 - 6 pm.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
