Introduces key concepts and debates in health humanities and the health professions.
Praise for Keywords for Health Humanities
“Keywords for the Health Humanities transcends its title. This rich volume contains essays that not only map the essential concepts in the health humanities, but also expand the possibilities of the field going forward. With an impressive roster of contributors whose essays address such wide-ranging topics as disability, disaster, human rights and indigeneity, as well as neurodiversity, stress, and trauma, this is a Health Humanities reader for our current era. Highly recommended not only for courses but also for any reader hoping to broaden their vision of what constitutes health.”— Susan Squier, The Pennsylvania State University
“Many, many aperçus here that diverge, converge, challenge, illumine, and occasionally surprise yet almost always take the reader in the plural directions that make up this exciting field. An excellent place to start to figure out what the humanities bring and do to health and medicine. Entertaining but, better still, serious and useful!”— Arthur Kleinman, author of The Soul of Care
