The Health Humanities Consortium promotes health humanities scholarship, education, and practices through interdisciplinary methods and theories that focus on the intersection of the arts and humanities, health, illness, and healthcare.
My new paper on The Health Humanities and the Future of Publishing is now live on Humanities Futures at the Franklin Humanities Institute of Duke University. Click here to access.
This paper offers a multimedia platform using text, hyperlinks and original comics.
Abstract: The Health Humanities is a new field that has grown out of and expanded on the work begun in the “medical humanities,” an area of study established in the mid-twentieth century. This paper discusses the evolution of the field and examines the effects that changes in publishing may hold for its continued development, including open access, pre-print servers, textbooks, ebooks, blogs, and other innovations that might presage a non-print—and even post-text—future.
