MedHum Fiction | Daily Dose: Adventures at the Intersection of Medicine and Literature

DailyDose_PosterAre you interested in writing about the medical humanities? Submit below!

Maybe you’re a horror movie fan with an interest in exploring the intersection between medical humanities and pop culture? Perhaps you’re interested in thinking about the process of writing or teaching history of medicine?

If you are, then we want to hear from you!

The medical humanities website MedHum Fiction | Daily Dose (http://fictionreboot-dailydose.com/) is looking for writers! We regularly publish articles about the medical humanities from a number of different angles, including:

  • Current events
  • Interdisciplinarity
  • Pop culture
  • Sex and gender
  • Material culture
  • Methods
  • Teaching
  • The archives, the library, the museum
  • Literature and health
  • Illness Narratives

Requirements: We seek thoughtful, critical, and well-researched work (or, work that is engaging with current trends and works) reflecting on the intersections between the humanities and health. Length: between 300-700 words. Audience: Our audience is a general one, rather than strictly academic, so we also ask that contributors clarify any terms that might be unfamiliar to those outside the field. Citation style: variable, but please be sure to credit sources. Additional: We recognize the value of fiction and artistic expression to medical humanities, and welcome sample works but ask that the authors embed their pieces in a critical framework. That is, we are interested in the ways such works engage health and humanities rather than serving principally as a platform for publishing them. An excellent example of an author’s contribution may be found here. See the Submission Guide for more.

If you’re interested in writing for us, please complete the application form here. we welcome the work of independent scholars as well as MDs and PhDs; graduate students and undergraduates with strong writing skills are likewise encouraged to apply. Our medical humanities editor will follow up by email within ten business days.
