THE WAR LITERATURE: MAPPING THE UNHEARD VOICES ACROSS THE GLOBE

Concept Note:

I am the enemy you killed, my friend.

I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned

Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.

I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.

Let us sleep now. . . (Wilfred Owen: Strange Meeting)

“I think our ligands are stories.” - Rita Charon

In the face of complex academic, social, and political issues emerging in the 21st century, humanities
scholarship has embraced interdisciplinarity as a means of addressing such issues. One field which has
emerged from this is the “Medical and Health Humanities,” a wide-ranging body of critical thought that
examines the intersection of various forms of healthcare and medicine with human and animal interests
and engages with theoretical, pedagogical, professional, and therapeutic inquiries.
