And yet, on closer inspection, medical humanities is a poorly definedfield-admirable in impulse but often confused about follow through. While the term humanitiesin this context suggests a set of intellectual commitments; in the medical humanities it refers instead to a vaguely articulated interest in humanity. Humanities students read poems to sharpen creative analytical skills, while in the medical humanities students read poetry to explore their personal feelings and to develop emotional intelligence. Humanists have been complicit in this confusion-even welcomed it. Faced with the so-called crisis in the humanitiesand seeking ways to make the humanities appear useful, many embrace medicines uncertainty about what humanities do, loudly proclaiming the capacity of literature, art history, religion, and philosophy to make doctors more caring people. Whether or not this is true, if were honest, feeling is not primarily what humanists are trained to cultivate. And if humanists are using the ...

Typically, we approach the human body from a medical, diagnostic model. But physicians have long recognized that this approach to health and well-being is not sufficient for understanding our somatic life. The cross disciplinary minor in medical humanities provides students with a humanistic and social study of illness, health and the body. Drawing upon concepts found in the disciplines contributing to the minor, courses in the curriculum share the common focus of examining how individuals and institutions articulate and disseminate conceptions of the body, including constituent issues such as race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender. Designed to complement any major, the goals of the medical humanities minor include helping students: ...

The North Carolina Humanities Council (NCHC). In 1970 the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), a federal agency established in the mid-1960s to promote research and education in the humanities, was authorized by Congress to organize and fund state-based humanities councils. These councils were charged with making the fields of the humanities more a part of the civic discourse by shifting humanities scholars from colleges and universities into local communities. In June 1971 a small group of North Carolinians-including John Caldwell, chancellor of North Carolina State University; H. G. Jones, director of the North Carolina Department of Archives and History; and George Bair, director of Educational Television at the University of North Carolina-organized the North Carolina Committee for Continuing Education in the Humanities. This committee, subsequently renamed the North Carolina Humanities Committee and later still the North Carolina Humanities Council, received funds each year from the ...

Since the first successful procedure in 1967 captured public attention, the problematic of heart transplantation has been widely addressed, not simply in medicine, but in anthropology, the social sciences, visual arts, popular culture and more recently in philosophy. The resulting proliferation of these different foci provides a multiperspectival overview of transplantation while at the same time preserving and boxing off the central concerns and assumptions of each unique approach. While significant bioscientific research has been conducted into the procedure and its medical outcomes, few researchers have explicitly connected organ recipients experiences and sociocultural views about transplantation to the materiality of their changed embodiment. Eight years ago, after extensive discussions and some pilot research, some of the current authors wrote a speculative article about the transplantation experience for Medical Humanities.1 The update discussed below moves beyond our specific ...
The commentary by Jay Baruch and Stacey Springs, Opioids and pain in the emergency department: a narrative crisis, is available through open access in the current issue of Medical Humanities.. A young woman presents to the emergency department in a sickle cell crisis, complaining of unbearable pain. When asked to rate it on a scale of 1 - 10, she rates it at 10. Having received a does of opioids and other medication, she is talking and laughing, and seems to be in less discomfort. However, when asked to rate her pain again, she maintains that it remains at 10. Is this opioid seeking behaviour?. Baruch and Springs suggests that the subjective nature of pain and the backdrop of the opioid crisis in the USA, present major obstacles to understanding, appreciating and responding to patients complaining of pain. They work through the narrative challenge that pain presents, and the prospect of addressing this challenge by means of greater proficiency with stories.. Baruch explains it better in ...

The humanities include languages, literature, music, philosophy, politics, history, media, the classics, religion, and the visual and performing arts. Additional subjects sometimes included in the humanities are anthropology, area studies, communications and cultural studies, although these are often regarded as social sciences. It was popular in the Renaissance ages. The arts are usually considered as part of the humanities. These include visual arts such as painting and sculpture, as well as performing arts such as theatre and dance, and literature. Other humanities such as language are sometimes considered to be part of the arts, for example as the language arts. The humanities study the human condition and mostly use methods that are analytic, critical, or speculative and not as empirical as natural and social sciences. ...

In June, New York Times columnist David Brooks sparked controversy and concern with his column decrying the death of the humanities in American institutions of higher learning.. The humanities are not only being bulldozed by an unforgiving job market, Brooks wrote. They are committing suicide because many humanists have lost faith in their own enterprise.. Brooks - who is also a senior fellow at Yales Jackson Institute of Global Affairs who teaches an undergraduate seminar - cited national statistics that show a 50 percent decline in the number of humanities majors in the past 50 years.. Academics and commentators across the country have cited these same figures as heralds of the impending collapse of the humanities disciplines, positing causes including the current state of the economy, a shift toward the sciences, the impracticality of studying ancient texts in a modern world, and as Brooks claimed, a loss of inspiration within the humanities disciplines themselves.. But one researcher, ...

The Digital Humanities Incubator is a program intended to help introduce University faculty, staff, and graduate assistants to digital humanities through a series of workshops, tutorials, office hours, and project consultations. Participants in the Digital Humanities Incubator are guided through a series of workshops and exercises on the process of developing digital humanities project ideas, finding data, evaluating tools, and crafting a compelling proposal for internal or external funding.. This first phase of the Incubator in 2012-13 concentrated on working with UMD Libraries faculty and staff exclusively. Academic libraries are reinventing themselves in support of teaching, research, and public service, but organizational culture often conspires against meaningful reform. Participating in and supporting digital scholarship is a key strategic need for academic libraries as the materials and analytical practices of many disciplines become increasingly digital. These changes require libraries ...

A favorite stereotype of a humanities scholar is that of a tweedy, pipe smoking, no-longer-middle-aged man surrounded by dusty tomes scribbling away on a yellow pad. If a computer manages to find its way into this bookish vision, it is tucked quietly in a corner and used only for the simplest kind of word processing. There are a growing number of real humanities scholars who would scoff at this stereotype, and rightly so. Todays scholar is more likely to point to the wealth of digital manuscripts and then complain that computing has lagged behind the needs of the Arts and Humanities. Some assert that the complex task of weather mapping is childs play compared to the need to seek out primary and secondary resources, compare and analyze multiple texts, and bring cohesion to disparate opinions--tasks that are all in a days work for todays scholar.. 1.
