This elective focuses on the application of creative arts and humanities disciplines to discourse about human health and wellbeing. These “health humanities” may take many forms, from the history of medicine to to medical ethics, from literature and creative writing to music, film, and the visual arts. A portion of the instruction will be dedicated to analysis and discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic through a health humanities lens. The student will survey these forms with the course director and identify a form in which to realize a personal creative project. Current and potential future academic research in health humanities will be discussed as well. Elective only. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at https://postdiscipline.english.ox.ac.uk/. Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
