CFP: Medical and Health Humanities (online publication)

Call from the editors of Medical and Health Humanities: 

We are pleased to announce the launch of Medical and Health Humanities (, an online publication designed to bring together humanities scholars and students from across institutions and disciplines. Our intention is to build “a department without walls.” The site is founded and edited by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a medical doctor.

We are looking for graduate students and junior scholars whose work intersects with the medical humanities to become regular writers for our publication. The commitment is one piece of writing per month. These pieces can intersect with your research, or be one-off creative explorations. Contributions need not be long (500 to 1000 words is ideal).

To apply, please write to with a short statement of interest and a CV. The deadline to apply for a writing position is 1st September 2017.
