Keranen and Levin-Clark publish on health humanities

History Professor and Associate Dean Marjorie Levine-Clark (left) and Associate Professor of Communication Lisa Keränen (right) published essays in the Health Humanities Reader (2014, Rutgers University Press), edited by AMC’s Therese Jones, along with Delease Wear and Lester Friedman. Levine-Clark’s essay is called "'I Always Prefer the Scissors': Isaac Baker Brown and Feminist Histories of Medicine,” while Keränen’s is "'This Weird, Incurable Disease': Competing Diagnoses in the Rhetoric of Morgellons.” After a foreword by Mark Vonnegut, the book assembles leading humanities scholars, bioethicists, and clinicians to envision fresh approaches to the health humanities through original essays. Students interested in minoring in health humanities (HEHM), which critically analyzes historical and contemporary connections among health, medicine, and society (and is useful for anyone interested in a health career) can find out more about the minor here.
