*  Medical Humanities Review Papers

In the late 1980s, Ronald A. Carson, PhD, Director for the Institute for the Medical Humanities and Thomas A, Murray, PhD, also of the Institute, determined that a book review journal was needed for works in the Medical Humanities. The Medical Humanities Review was created to fill this need. Doctors Carson and Murray served as co-Editors and members of the Institute's faculty determined the books to be reviewed and reviewers at the top of their fields were selected to complete the work. The publication began in 1987 and every year until 2005, two issues were produced, one in the spring and another in the fall. The Collection was donated to the Moody Medical Library in 2006..

Description: How can the humanities fields enhance their roles in academia and society? Christopher Newfield, author of Unmaking the Public University, argues that "defending the humanities" binds these fields to the post-war university's declining economic mission. After tracing this decline in part to the theory of "disruptive innovation," he suggests that the humanities already offer important alternative practices of innovation, including their radically non-managerial forms of qualitative interpretation. Professor Newfield encourages humanities practitioners to be more assertive in shaping the post-capitalist societies now in the works. ...

With humanity now realizing that government is a useless obstacle in the way of human thriving and freedom, I expect we will witness phenomenal things in the coming months and years. I see humanity now actually slowly but surely pulling together in an all-out effort to save itself from government.. I never thought of this concept myself until recently and I don't see any other way to articulate it. This is where we are. We are now seeing the expression of this reality in many freedom lovers world wide. This was essentially the very same spirit behind the founding of America. This was the spirit behind the Constitution and Bill of Rights and the primary meme of those initial years when America was founded. It doesn't mean that the founding fathers were saints or any of that, it means that the spirit of freedom that drove them to do what they did is back, in fact this modern-day rekindling of freedom is and will be much more intense than what the founding fathers imagined. Humanity is now ...

*  Sociology Seminar: Teresa Piacentini, 'Intercultural Communication in Healthcare', Glasgow | Medical Humanities Research Centre

How do health care providers respond to increased and multidimensional diversification? What does this mean for effective intercultural communication in health care settings, in both clinical settings and the community? In this paper I will explore how increased diversity challenges traditional models of communication in health care provision that have largely focused on language as the main barrier to accessing services. In this paper, I empirically engage with theories of intersectionality and super-diversity to ground an analysis of experiences of intercultural communication in interpreter-mediated health care settings in Glasgow. Since the 1990s, the city has experienced unanticipated demographic shifts due to the wider context of rapidly increasing intra-European mobility, an increasing number of migrants who are permanently or temporarily settled in the Scotland, and that the city is the primary UK dispersal area for asylum seekers outside of London. This diversity is revealed not just in ...

Even those who, from motives of interest, still favour or engage in the trade, have been obliged to be silent upon the injustice of first procuring the Negroes, and have not had the hardiness to excuse or palliate the horrors of the middle passage: but still they assert, that the treatment the slaves meet with in the West-Indies amply counterbalances their previous sufferings, nay, they have not scrupled to extol a state of servitude as a happy asylum from African despotism, and calmly maintain, that the condition of the labouring poor in England is much harder than that of the Negroes in the West-India islands.

"[People in the humanities] don't know how to articulate how their work can have concrete effects on the world in which they live," Judith Butler said in 2000, pointing to a general anxiety in the humanities that asks, "What effect are any of us having, and what effect can we have?". Under the catchphrase "Is Thought Action?" this conference aims to investigate that anxiety, which in 2013 appears as acute as it did thirteen years ago, and to channel it into a productive dialogue. Our goal is to explore and critique points of tension between academic practice in the humanities and the wider world in the broadest sense.

*  The Technology Collection » Towards the Participation of Social Sciences and Humanities in the Practical Realms of Technology

The acts of making something are usually unfamiliar to social and human researchers, who are more accustomed to an observant position regarding the technical moments of conception and construction. From the standpoint of the social sciences and humanities, this paper argues for a different approach to technological realms. Our goal is to move increasingly from detached studies to more interactive encounters, mainly through a commitment to working directly with researchers and practitioners from engineering, design, architecture and other technical fields. We argue that, although multiple analyses have been attentive to technological phenomenons and its empirical ramifications, there still lingers an overall passivity towards the possibilities of transforming them through synergistic research and development platforms. The external character of social and human sciences contacts with technology can be changed via interdisciplinary efforts, ranging from conceptual exchanges to methodological ...

*  Education for Sustainable Development: The Role of the Humanities and Social Sciences - ULSF

Whitley Kaufman's primary teaching and research interests are ethics and philosophy of law.]. My goal here is to raise some questions about the concept of "sustainability" from the perspective of value theory. In particular, I would like to discuss the issue of the place of values in education and in public discussion generally. As an ethicist, I am concerned about the role of moral values in the debate about sustainable practices.. Let us consider the World Commission on Environment and Development definition of "sustainability": "Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable - to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." It can hardly be questioned that such a shift in priorities is a welcome one: a call for attention to the long-term effects of our current practices, a shift away from short-term thinking, a concern for the effects of our actions on future generations, and so on. Far too many of our ...

The note contained the same phrase I had highlighted last night. I wanted to share this piece of serendipity with you.. The paragraph in question was about the leaders they had worked with who were successful in implementing real and lasting change and the point noted by both Shawn and I was:. …all [these leaders] shared on thing in common…a deep and abiding recognition that their people bring their humanity to work with them every single day; that the absolute division between the work realm and the personal realm is naive and unhelpful; and that 21st Century leaders must find a more effective way to engage the emotional lives of their organisations and their leadership ...

This seminar investigates the social and cultural meaning of "noise" early-modern Europe (1400-1800) in order to assess whether noise has a history. How did the meanings, perceptions, and effects of noise change over time, especially in a period that experienced major transformations in religious practices, scientific knowledge, urban life, political state formation, and Europe's relationship to the rest of the world? Did such immense changes affect how Europeans listened to the world around them, or how and what they heard? How did early modern Europeans use noise as a way of assigning meanings, differences, distinctions, and hierarchies? What moral, aesthetic, and even political values were imposed upon sound and noise in early modernity? We begin with a series of readings that theorize the social, cultural, and political dimensions of sound and noise. Next, we turn to a series of specific case studies that explore how dissonance operated in historically specific cultural and social contexts. ...

Beamish was awarded summer research support to continue a fruitful comparative research collaboration with French colleagues at the Groupe de Sociologie Pragmatique et Réflexive. The comparative research program takes California and the EU as its points of focus, comparing societal level responses to crescive risks in order to provide a cross-national look at the way regulators and experts similarly and differently deploy their expertise and regulatory tools and models to ad- dress emerging environmental and health issues. The research collaboration explores the central questions of how regulatory regimes in California and the EU appre- hend environmental and health risks and have respond- ed to them and how civil societal groups and institutions as represented by residents, protest groups, social elites, and the media in California and the EU have responded to environmental and health risks ...

*  The Plan To Engineer The Human Species

The human race is dying. It certainly won't happen this year or even this decade, but the steady degeneration of human DNA would eventually lead to the total extinction of humanity given enough time. The reason that we are heading toward extinction is the increasing number of mutations that are being passed down from generation to generation. According to Dr. John Sanford of Cornell University, every one of us already carries tens of thousands of harmful mutations, and each of us will pass on approximately 100 new mutations to future generations. Humanity is degenerating at an accelerating pace, and at some point the number of mutations will become so great that we will no longer be able to produce viable offspring. This is not going to happen in the immediate future, but already signs of DNA degeneration are all around us. Despite all of our advanced technology, genetically-related diseases are absolutely exploding. Our bodies are weak and frail, and with each passing generation it is getting ...

I think at present we do not have the technology or capacity to sustain health without eating plants, and possibly even without eating some animal products. If there is a species who I think is worth keeping alive on grounds that we really could cultivate harmony between the species and bring about a peaceful realm, I would suspect humanity to have the highest potential for this, however, I can also see humanity as having the most capacity to torture cells and plants and animals mercilessly without concern for such beings experiences. I am hopeful as a whole we will choose the path of empathy and peace and take a path of guiding ourselves and even other species into sustaining life without harming other beings, while cultivating wonderful experiences for living beings while we are here. I am a fan of harm reduction, I think we haveto start where we are, and many will be eating meat a while-- even if we evolve beyond it.

*  SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR PLANET EARTH AND HUMANITY: THE GREATEST PUMPKIN WEIGHS IN AT 2323.7 POUNDS

The CPI is based on 1984 at 100. Thus, 241 means a 241% inflation since 1984. There are various ways to look at this, but one is to subtract 100 from 241, getting 141, so the effective inflation today, nearly a third of a century later, is 141% higher. Another comparison is that the CPI in 1916 was 10.9, and is at 240.853 today, a hundred years later. Thus, the average commodity that sold for a buck then, today goes for $22 ...

I would like to inject my two sense into the discussion. The conception was supernatural, but the birth was natural. The blend of divinity with humanity is a mystery (mystery of godliness), but the fact that he was a man is no mystery. He was verily man. He was 100% man and 100% God. However, he lived as a man hungered, thirst, felt pain, sorrow and grief, was tempted and died as a man. More importantly he obeyed as a man and not as a God. We are born again by the holy spirit, but who can explain the process. It is a mystery. Christ was a jew according to the flesh. His humanity was not make believe. He recieved features from His mother. Christ did recieve from His mother 23 Chromosones. He recieved His human body from his mother as all children recieve their body from the mother. The body of that single cell comes exclusively from the mother. From the father is passed the exclusively selfish nature. It is passed to son and daughter, but only too the son is passed the ability to pass it. This is ...

ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME. 1. "LAUDATO SI', mi' Signore" - "Praise be to you, my Lord". In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. "Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs".[1]. 2. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she "groans in travail" (Rom ...

In the previous papers I laid out the situation and some strategy for remedy. We need to purge our lands of these people for the most part.

But the rest, the Jihadists need to be expelled back to their homelands at Gods Speed. Everyone will do well to go online and educate themselves about this situation and I am sure most all of you will agree after that. Usama is a good place to start.

*  DHQ: Digital Humanities Quarterly: Digital Encoding as a Hermeneutic and Semiotic Act: The Case of Valerio Magrelli

To represent the references between the list and the elements in the text we assigned to each adjective an identifier using the n-attribute (preceded by the "adj" attribute: adj_1, adj_2, etc.) The adjectives recur several times in the text and the author attached a particular importance to them, circling or underlining them. To render this emphasis we have used the ,emph, tag, giving it a rend attribute which explains what type it is (circled or underlined). The encoding of the fourth verse (lines 39-70) presents one solution to a complex set of interrelationships among elements in various areas of the autograph. Subsequently, probably during the insertion of nasce il canto, the author inserted an arrow, which refers to a list of four adjectives written in capitals at the foot of the page (Figure 02, bottom left). This type of indication can be interpreted as an "action" of the author directed towards producing certain effects - but not results, because the author is, in a certain sense, also ...

*  DHQ: Digital Humanities Quarterly: Towards a Rationale of Audio-Text

This notion of an event-centric indexicality can be made more broadly applicable to all kinds of digital textuality. Michael Witmore has written that "a text is a text because it is massively addressable at different levels of scale . . . one can query a position within the text at a certain level of abstraction" such as a word or a line, but also on the level of a theme or a character [Witmore 2010]. In a digital context in which we are attempting to model textuality for discoverability and analysis, a text can also be understood as massively and differently addressable and therefore indexical according to how the protocols we design in the system instantiate it at a given point and time. Consider Witmore's definition of text addressability in relation to Sterne's description of the MP3 and McGann's "Rationale of Hypertext" in which a central identifying feature of the hypertext is that "[un]like a traditional book or set of books, the HyperText need never be 'complete'"; rather, the hypertext ...

We are learning that differences in an individual's genetic make-up, or in the specific genetic changes that led to a patient's disease, are important to how that patient's disease develops and responds to treatment.

*  Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology: June 2011

Enumerating the number of organisms below humanity (the realms of the animal, vegetable and mineral, at our beck and call), the Spanish thinker quickly posits that beyond "the apex of natural evolution", as we like to think of ourselves, there are entities that live at a higher dimensional level than our own and which share reality in the same way that we share the fields with cattle or the crops we raise for our own sustenance. Much in the same way that we exert our will over beasts through the use of reason, these higher-level denizens (the "macrobes" of C.S. Lewis's That Hideous Strength, to give the reader an easy reference) control us through a "super-reason" that is completely irrational to us, and which we are unable to understand.

Dear Richard, I am SO happy that you jumped in and pointed out the alternative perspectives that some of us have on the nature of 'intelligence'. I only continued to use this word within the same context of the previous post to be able to demonstrate a model. My own personal concept of 'intelligence' was not represented.

*  salt lake architecture: December 2009

If the city is thought of as a work of art, it can achieve a design for living and an exciting accommodation to the inevitability of change with grace: its highways and byways form the network of social exchange, its open spaces become the matrix of nature's effectiveness. Its recognition of humanity in all of its value considerations become the matrix of success. Its capacity to respond as a place or the sum of many places to our appetites and eternal search for community, provides the only justification for urbanization itself. The unhindered ability of the city to serve our spirit rather than accommodate our physical requirements only make it worthy of protection, affection and pride. But to be loved by the city and secure the most from it, one must first love the city, respect its traditions, abstain from the degrading effects of partisanship for its own sake and resolve malignancy in any form."

(1/34) Don't cry for us Argentinians: two decades of teaching medical humanities.

Medical humanities--history, literature, anthropology, ethics and fine arts applied to medicine--play an important role in medical education. For more than 20 years an effort has been made to obtain an academic identity for such a multidisciplinary approach. A distinction between humanitarianism and humanism is attempted here, the former being associated with medical care and the latter with medical education. In order more precisely to define the relationship between the arts and medicine, an alternative term "medical kalology", as-yet-unsanctioned, coined after the rules of medical terminology, is proposed. The Department of Medical Humanities in the School of Medicine, National University La Plata, submits the following apologia: Don't cry for us Argentinians, since the teaching of medical humanities has helped our doctors to function more truly humanistically during the past two decades, as we intend to continue with this calling in the future.  (+info)

(2/34) Humanities and medicine (a slightly dissident view).

Programs for humanities and medicine are growing in a number of medical schools in the U.S.A. Proponents of the programs, which are intended to bring together humanists, scientists, physicians, and others, believe that broadening the background of physicians will put a more human face on the practice of medicine, despite its increasingly technological nature. There is little to support this premise, and its successes and failures are not measurable. There are reasons to support the programs, however, but they have more to do with what physicians like and want to do than with what is therapeutic for them.  (+info)

(4/34) 'He found me very well; for me, I was still feeling sick': the strange worlds of physicians and patients in the 18th and 21st centuries.

It is commonplace today to deplore the dissatisfaction of patients with the physician-patient relationship. Furthermore, historical investigation shows that this problem is not really new. We investigated an important source of patients' views in the 18th century, namely the letters of patients received by the famous Swiss physician, Samuel Tissot, and noted remarkably similar feelings of frustration. Yet the medical paradigms of today and of Tissot's times are considerably different. We propose that the persisting problems in the physician-patient relationship are due to a basic dissonance between the patient's ordinary modes of perception and the systematic way of perceiving reality characteristic of the physician. In addition, they reflect the unavoidable chasm between the ultimately private and singular nature of the illness experience, and the general and anonymous stance of medical theory. This chasm is therefore a permanent feature of the patient-physician relationship, predating the advent of scientific medicine, even if the latter reinforced it. In line with the current medical humanities movement, we believe that the engagement of physicians and medical students with literature and the arts helps them explore, and to some extent overcome, the existential divide between the patient's experiential self knowledge and the systematic, impersonal knowledge that plays a central role in medicine. We suggest a few examples of contemporary fiction that may be relevant and useful in this respect.  (+info)

(5/34) Medicine and the humanities--theoretical and methodological issues.

Engel's biopsychosocial model, Cassell's promotion of the concept "person" in medical thinking and Pellegrino's and Thomasma's philosophy of medicine are attempts to widen current biomedical theory of disease and to approach medicine as a form of human activity in pursuit of healing. To develop this approach further we would like to propose activity theory as a possible means for understanding the nature of medical practice. By "activity theory" we refer to developments which have evolved from Vygotsky's research on socially mediated mental functions and processes. Analysing medicine as activity enforces the joint consideration of target and subject: who is doing what to whom. This requires the use of historical, linguistic, anthropological, and semiotic tools. Therefore, if we analyse medicine as an activity, humanities are both theoretically and methodologically "inbound" (or internal) to the analysis itself. On the other hand, literature studies or anthropological writings provide material for analysing the various forms of medical practices.  (+info)

(6/34) Medical humanities at the University of Wales Swansea.

The UK's first taught master's degree in medical humanities involves a field of inquiry that is frequently philosophical, pursuing interests and questions traditionally arising in medical philosophy and ethics, but on a larger interdisciplinary canvas, drawing upon literature and the visual arts, sociology and anthropology, social history and politics, and theological and religious perspectives.  (+info)

(7/34) Constructions of self: ethical overtones in surprising locations.

Little discussion has occurred in the health profession literature with respect to how the "self" is constructed, despite the imagination and attention it has garnered from philosophers and theorists in various other disciplines. Yet this subject has surprisingly ethical overtones for health professional education and practice. In this paper notions of the self are briefly considered and it is suggested that a narrative and dialogic view of self can contribute to insights about ethical practice in the health professions. Subtle issues with respect to how relationship and language may be used to wield power are revealed and discussed; and awareness about how such power is used in practice is highlighted as a crucial issue. The assumptions practitioners make with respect to constructions of self are ethically important and this topic warrants consideration in the medical humanities.  (+info)

(8/34) Humanities for medical students? A qualitative study of a medical humanities curriculum in a medical school program.

BACKGROUND: Today, there is a trend towards establishing the medical humanities as a component of medical education. However, medical humanities programs that exist within the context of a medical school can be problematic. The aim of this study was to explore problems that can arise with the establishment of a medical humanities curriculum in a medical school program. METHODS: Our theoretical approach in this study is informed by derridean deconstruction and by post-structuralist analysis. We examined the ideology of the Humanities and Medicine program at Lund University, Sweden, the practical implementation of the program, and how ideology and practice corresponded. Examination of the ideology driving the humanities and medicine program was based on a critical reading of all available written material concerning the Humanities and Medicine project. The practice of the program was examined by means of a participatory observation study of one course, and by in-depth interviews with five students who participated in the course. Data was analysed using a hermeneutic editing approach. RESULTS: The ideological language used to describe the program calls it an interdisciplinary learning environment but at the same time shows that the conditions of the program are established by the medical faculty's agenda. In practice, the "humanities" are constructed, defined and used within a medical frame of reference. Medical students have interesting discussions, acquire concepts and enjoy the program. But they come away lacking theoretical structure to understand what they have learned. There is no place for humanities students in the program. CONCLUSION: A challenge facing cross-disciplinary programs is creating an environment where the disciplines have equal standing and contribution.  (+info)
