This is promising - thanks Emily. I suggest we implement a blog with biweekly postings - members of this website could be assigned to write one post per year based on their speciality. The utility to write and post blogs already exists on this site.

#medhum

Just had to share that Andy Slavitt, the Acting Administrator of CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services--the heavyweight champion of US payer policy) liked my tweet about #medhum. I'm not saying that this constitutes the official position of the United States government on medical humanities or anything, but I see no reason not to jump to that conclusion...

Thank you for a wonderful program. Will the video of the proceedings be posted online here or at your KCL site?


Comment by Deborah Jenson on Medical Humanities in France | 4 Jul 2016

Thanks Daniele, for this wonderful presentation on medical humanities in France. Italian medical humanities do seem to be more established as a field. And yet, one could argue that medical humanities have been practiced in nearly all academic disciplines of the humanities, on a piecemeal basis, and without a concrete goal of intervention in liminal university/clinical educational and research spaces: Foucault in philosophy; Didi-Huberman in art history; the vast corpus of literary theory inspired by psychoanalysis; etc. It might be interesting for you to reach out to international scholars who often collaborate on health humanities in Paris, although I think it is more often called History of Medicine. As an example, Richard Keller from the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been conducting research in Paris and collaborating with French colleagues for years. This might allow you to map out larger networks of existing actors in the field. Good luck with your MA program! I have been leading a "Neurohumanities in Paris" program for the last four summers, and I'm eager to connect neuroscience/humanities studies to health humanities, but I'm not sure I can fit in the program next year.

Suggestions for statement on tiered access policy

Hi everyone- Please hit "reply" below to post any thoughts you have on a statement of access policies for the site. As mentioned during the site workshop, groups can set their own levels of visibility for project documents, conversations, and bibliographies: e.g. public, CHCI Medical Humanities site users, project members only, etc. We will incorporate your thoughts into a statement on the site's "About" page that explains this tiered structure. Feel free to contact me at gw2290@columbia.edu with any questions. Thanks- Grant
