Health humanities is a fast-growing, interdisciplinary field of study that examines how the arts and humanities can be applied to issues of health and well-being. Encompassing the longer-established medical humanities, it uses methods common to disciplines such as History, Literature, Philosophy, Media Studies, Cultural Studies and Humanistic Social Sciences to explore and help transform the practice of medicine, healthcare and social care. In this collection you’ll find groundbreaking research and multidisciplinary perspectives from across our imprints, including exclusive author blogs and free access to journal articles and book chapters.
All chapters and articles are free to read until July 19, 2022. Open access content is permanently free.
