Studies in Health Humanities explores the fraught, often deeply ideological, lineaments of health and its proxies. This series investigates the past and present workings of health in situated contexts including local or global spaces, public or private systems, virtual or digital realms, and political intimacies.

This new series welcomes research from scholars at any stage in their career working in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. We seek projects that reflect the diversity of topics, issues, and communities that comprise—or invent new futures for—the field of health humanities broadly conceived.

Call for Proposals

The Studies in Health Humanities series is accepting proposals for innovative, timely, and robustly theorized monographs that advance our understanding of the diverse representational and cultural practices associated with health, illness, embodiment and care.

We are especially interested in proposals that explore how health related issues are informed by broader structures concerning race and racialization, (neo)colonial legacies, environmental and climate concerns, science and technology, and caregiving and community work.

Above all, Studies in Health Humanities asks readers to reimagine the critical study of “health,” considering what it can—or should be—in the multiply precarious conditions of the twenty-first century.

Please see our submission guidelines and send materials to Kate Crassons at inlup@lehigh.edu.
