This course explores the relationship between literature and medicine: what it is like to be ill; what it is like to love a person who is sick; what it is like to grieve; to care for the sick; to confront illness and sometimes succumb to it; and to observe how all of this gets played out in literature and in the detail and denomination of the body. The resonances between medicine and literature engender hopefully new approaches to critical thinking and more important to the human condition. Elective only. Students may also undertake a Capstone project in the Medical Humanities, as part of the four-year Scholarly Reflection and Concentration/Capstone. For more information, see https://www.qu.edu/schools/medicine/programs/medical-doctor-degree/md/curriculum/scholarly-reflection-and-concentration-capstone-course/. 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.
