    Advancing Global Health Equity: The Role of the Liberal Arts in Health Professional Education.Abebe Bekele, Denis Regnier, Tomlin Paul, Tsion Yohannes Waka & Elizabeth H. Bradley - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (2):185-192.
    Much innovation has taken place in the development of medical schools and licensure exam processes across the African continent. Still, little attention has been paid to education that enables the multidisciplinary, critical thinking needed to understand and help shape the larger social systems in which health care is delivered. Although more than half of medical schools in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States offer at least one medical humanities course, this is less common in Africa. We report on (...)

    Pediatric Resident Perceptions of a Narrative Medicine Curriculum.Raymond A. Cattaneo, Natalie González, Abby Leafe & Rachel Fleishman - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (2):157-169.
    Training residents to become humanistic physicians capable of empathy, compassionate communication, and holistic patient care is among our most important tasks as physician educators. Narrative medicine aims to foster those highly desirable characteristics, and previous studies have shown it to be successful in fostering self-reflection, emotional processing, and preventing burnout. We aimed to evaluate pediatric residents’ perceptions of a novel narrative medicine curriculum. After the initiation of a longitudinal narrative medicine curriculum, focus groups were conducted with residents who participated in (...)

    “Inside Out of Mind”: Alternative Realities, Dementia and Graphic Medicine.Laboni Das & Sathyaraj Venkatesan - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (2):171-184.
    Graphic medicine, an interdisciplinary field situated at the crossroads of comics and healthcare, operates as a medium through which the intricate nature of experiences with illness can be articulated, challenging orthodox medical dogmatism in an engaging and accessible way. Combining the affordances of comics and the narrative power of storytelling, graphic medicine elucidates the socio-cultural stigmatization of dementia influenced by a multitude of discourses. Diverging from existing discourses that depict individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) as zombies, brain-dead, or empty shells, (...)

    Novel Integration of a Health Equity Immersion Curriculum in Medical Training.Kendra G. Hotz, Allison Silverstein & Austin Dalgo - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (2):193-199.
    Health disparities education is an integral and required part of medical professional training, and yet existing curricula often fail to effectively denaturalize injustice or empower learners to advocate for change. We discuss a novel collaborative intervention that weds the health humanities to the field of health equity. We draw from the health humanities an intentional focus retraining provider imaginations by centering patient narratives; from the field of health equity, we draw the linkage between stigmatized social identities and health disparities. We (...)

    A Psychoneuroimmunological Reading of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in the Context of Bodily Aging.Rocío Riestra-Camacho & Miguel Ángel Jordán Enamorado - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (2):139-155.
    Jane Austen normally avoids discussing appearance throughout her works. Persuasion constitutes the exception to the rule, as the story focuses on the premature aging experienced by her protagonist, Anne Elliot, seemingly due to disappointed love. Much has been written about Anne’s “loss of bloom,” but never from the perspective of psychoneuroimmunology, the field that researches the interrelation between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems. In this paper, we adopt a perspective of psychoneuroimmunology to argue that Austen established a (...)

    “It’ll never end, I’ll never go”: Representation of Caregiving in Samuel Beckett’s Endgame and Footfalls.Hui Ling Michelle Chiang - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):79-93.
    Research on the unrepresentability of death in Samuel Beckett’s oeuvre abound in Beckett scholarship, but little attention has been given to the artist’s representation of caregiving to the dying in his plays. With reference to Martin Heidegger’s concept of _care_ and Albert Camus’s idea of the _absurd_, this article analyzes _Endgame_ (1957) and _Footfalls_ (1976) by attending to Beckett’s dramatic representation of caregiving as undergirded by a sense of its absurdity. The almost 20-year gap between the writing of both plays (...)

    Beyond Empathy to System Change: Four Poems on Health by Bertolt Brecht.William MacGregor, Martin Horn & Dennis Raphael - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):53-77.
    Bertolt Brecht’s poem “A Worker’s Speech to a Doctor” is frequently cited as a means to raise awareness among health workers of the health effects of living and working conditions. Less cited is his Call to Arms trilogy of poems, which calls for class-based action to transform the capitalist economic system that sickens and kills so many. In this article, we show how “A Worker’s Speech to a Doctor,” with its plea for empathy for the ill, contrasts with the more (...)

    Harnessing the Humanities to Foster Staff Resilience: An Annual Arts and Humanities Rounds at a Children’s Hospital.Wynne Morrison, Elizabeth Steinmiller, Sofia Lizza, Todd Dillard, Patrick Lipawen & Stephen Ludwig - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):113-119.
    Working in healthcare can be fulfilling, meaningful, and sometimes exhausting. Creative endeavors may be one way to foster personal resilience in healthcare providers. In this article, we describe an annual arts and humanities program, the Ludwig Rounds, developed at a large academic children’s hospital. The event encourages staff to reflect on resilience by sharing their creative work and how it had an impact on their clinical careers. The multidisciplinary forum also allows staff to connect and learn about each other. We (...)

    Medical Pluralism as a Matter of Justice.Kathryn Lynn Muyskens - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):95-111.
    Culture, health, and medicine intersect in various ways—and not always without friction. This paper examines how liberal multicultural states ought to interact with diverse communities which hold different health-related or medical beliefs and practices. The debate is fierce within the fields of medicine and bioethics as to how traditional medicines ought to be regarded. What this debate often misses is the relationship that medical traditions have with cultural identity and the value that these traditions can have beyond the confines of (...)

    Moving Through a Textual Space Autistically.Hanna Bertilsdotter Rosqvist, Anna Nygren & Sarinah O’Donoghue - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):17-34.
    This article is an investigation of neurodivergent reading practices. It is a collectively written paper where the focus is as much on an autoethnographic exploration of our autistic readings of autism/autistic fiction as it is on the read texts themselves. The reading experiences described come primarily from Yoon Ha Lee’s _Dragon Pearl_ (2019) and Dahlia Donovan’s _The Grasmere Cottage Mystery_ (2018), which we experience as opposite each other in how they depict their neurodivergent characters and speak to us as autistic (...)

    “I AM NOT A VIRUS”: COVID-19, Anti-Asian Hate, and Comics as Counternarratives.Sathyaraj Venkatesan & Ishani Anwesha Joshi - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):35-51.
    Ever since the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, East Asians across the globe have been ostracized, othered, pathologized, and subjected to numerous anti-Asian hate crimes. Despite contemporary China’s rapid modernization, the country is still perceived as an Oriental and primitive site. Taking these cues, the current article aims to investigate the Sinophobic attitudes in the wake of COVID-19 through a detailed analysis of sequential comics and cartoons by artists of East Asian descent, such as Laura Gao and (...)

    Public Health, Visual Rhetoric, and Latin America: Steinbeck’s The Forgotten Village.Sebastian Williams - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities 45 (1):1-15.
    This essay analyzes the visualization of Euro-American medicine and indigenous healing in John Steinbeck’s 1941 documentary-drama _The Forgotten Village_. The movie juxtaposes film and medical discourse as exemplifications of modern, visual culture by showing excerpts from hygiene films and foregrounding medical imagery (e.g., bacteria cultures). The film displaces indigenous medicine by privileging a Euro-American medical model, and the gaze of oppression is perpetuated through humanitarian medical intervention. In short, disease is not simply a material fact but embedded in discourses about (...)

    A Qualitative Phenomenological Philosophy Analysis of Affectivity and Temporality in Experiences of COVID-19 and Remaining Symptoms after COVID-19 in Sweden. [REVIEW]Kristin Zeiler, Sofia Morberg Jämterud, Anna Bredström, Anestis Divanoglou & Richard Levi - 2024 - Journal of Medical Humanities:1-21.
    This article explores affectivity, temporality, and their interrelation in patients who contracted COVID-19 during the first wave of the pandemic in Sweden and with symptoms indicative of post-COVID-19 Condition (PCC) that remained one year after the infection. It offers a qualitative phenomenological philosophy analysis, showing how being ill with acute COVID-19 and with symptoms indicative of PCC can entail a radically altered self-world relation. We identify two examples of pre-intentional (existential) feelings: that of listlessness and that of not being able (...)
