Human beings are more than the sum of their organs and body parts: their roles in society, their (hi)stories, their living and economic conditions, but also their dreams, fears, and inventions impact their health.
The inter- and transdisciplinary edited series Medical Humanities
will connect the perspectives of medicine, the humanities, and social sciences to gain new insights about how society, health, and the environment interact. Focusing on the living human body, the Medical Humanities
series raises urgent questions on gender politics and bioethics, and mediates between care and health policies, technology and body images.
