Medical Humanities. Brian Hurwitz (ed)

"This issue of Anglo Saxonica features papers illustrating scholarly work undertaken in the Medical Humanities, a field that encompasses many discourse communities sharing an interest in bringing the intellectual approaches of the arts and humanities to bear on problems raised by human health and disease. The papers collected here engage with a range of materials and media—memoirs, letters, short stories, myths, ethnographies, case histories, films and TV series—and employ methods characteristic of the Medical Humanities: techniques of literary and oral history, the history of ideas, and the close reading and analysis of film and texts, which generate new insights into how health and disease are expressed in human artefacts and cultural memory. Together they provide an introduction to a field whose origins lie in concerns clearly articulated in the second half of the nineteenthcentury, about the educational philosophy and basis of medical training in a world increasingly shaped by scientific specialisation and loss of contact with the history of the discipline and its own practices". - Abstract
