19th-century Britain witnessed the convergence of many historical trends that exacerbated disability stigma, even as the era embraced a rehabilitative ethos. The growth of specialized medicine, the expansion of a sprawling asylum system, institutional categorization of the poor, public health initiatives, and the rise of eugenics: all these and more spawned attitudes and practices that worked to disable those who were physically and mentally impaired.

Science, Technology, and Literature During Plagues and Pandemics

 

In The Parasite, Michel Serres argues that “the parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites it or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyzes.” Throughout the world, COVID-19 continues to interrupt and alter daily life while it simultaneously compels governments to rely on technology and science to combat its spread. Configurations is seeking articles that examine intersections of science, technology, and literature with myriad contemporary and historical contexts relevant to COVID-19.

Navigating Chaos: Living the Apocalyptic Dystopia

Hegel wrote that the only thing we can learn from history is that we learn nothing from history, so I doubt the epidemic will make us any wiser. The only thing that is clear is that the virus will shatter the very foundations of our lives, causing not only an immense amount of suffering but also economic havoc conceivably worse than the Great Recession. There is no return to normal, the new “normal” will have to be constructed on the ruins of our old lives, or we will find ourselves in a new barbarism whose signs are already clearly discernible.                          (Slovaj Žižek, Pandemic!)

Articles in about 4000(four thousand words) are invited from faculties, academicians, scholars and activists for the inaugural issue of a peer reviewed journal called Social Currents. The issue will feature articles on the Covid-19 pandemic and what this means for a society, culture and nation. Have we learnt new lessons or should we go about doing what we always aspire and do-a technocracy irreverent to human history and its complex interlinking with the environment. While doctors and nurses are at the forefront of the battle against the pandemic, are we somehow ignoring the sanitation workers or such men and women who have been traditionally marginalized and do not figure in our ideas of societal growth?

Illness, Medicine, and Literature: The Significance of Storytelling in Healthcare Settings

Reem EL Khalili/ NeMLA

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

We tend to look at medicine and the arts & humanities as two separate entities unaware that they are similar. Medicine is affiliated with rationality while the arts & humanities are affiliated with emotions. As a result, a number of gaps exist between Medicine and Literature that need to be closed. In this session, I would like to expand upon the practice of storytelling in Healthcare settings and the ways in which it allows for a more patient-centered approach. I would also like to examine our roles as literature, language, and creative writing scholars in bridging the gaps between the two disciplines, attempting to improve the mental health of healthcare professionals through the act of writing, and contributing to a better healthcare system.

As Carroll Pursell suggests in Technology in Postwar America, technology enabled America to develop global prominence in the 20th century. And in seems poised to do the same in the 21st. Yet the relationship Americans have with technology is thorny. For instance, Thomas L. Friedman lauds technology, observing that “Globalization 3.0,” a new era in global history that is marked by digital developments, is leveling the playing field (The World is Flat 10).

As we (North American academics) think and, moreover, live in the shadow of the global pandemic, the role digital media plays in our no-longer-ordinary lives becomes increasingly salient. During the quarantine, participation in digital lives can be said to be no longer a supplement or replacement for “real life”; instead, it seems to have become its constitutive activity. Nevertheless, this new entanglement between the pandemic and digital media is not devoid of national, political, economic, and linguistic specificities: issues of accessibility, censorship, credibility, and the like cannot be addressed in the abstract. Instead, they only become visible when uses of digital media is contextualized and compared across national and linguistic boundaries.
