Medical Humanism / American Literature

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 30th Annual Conference

May 23-26, 2019, Boston, MA

Given the ongoing healthcare crisis in America—soaring costs, physician shortages, and lack of insurance coverage—and the rising interest in the field of health humanities, I seek projects that illuminate American literature’s contribution to medical humanism. More specifically, I am interested in papers that address how American literature can help us revision our view of the body, health, illness, disease, medical education, and/or the healthcare system.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: A HKS SYMPOSIUM While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.
