The Edinburgh Companion to the Critical Medical Humanities now out in paperback

The Edinburgh Companion to the Critical Medical Humanities edited by network co-lead Anne Whitehead and Angela Woods, with Sarah Atkinson, Jane Macnaughton and Jennifer Richards is now out in paperback.

A field-defining collection of original critical engagements at the intersection of the biomedical sciences, arts, humanities and social sciences.

In this landmark Companion, expert contributors from around the world map out the field of the critical medical humanities. This is the first volume to introduce comprehensively the ways in which interdisciplinary thinking across the humanities and social sciences might contribute to, critique and develop medical understanding of the human individually and collectively. The thirty-six newly commissioned chapters range widely within and across disciplinary fields, always alert to the intersections between medicine, as broadly defined, and critical thinking. Each chapter offers suggestions for further reading on the issues raised, and each section concludes with an Afterword, written by a leading critic, outlining future possibilities for cutting-edge work in this area.
