Journal of Medical Humanities

Editor: Therese Jones, PhD


​​The Center for Bioethics and Humanities is the home of the Journal of Medical Humanities, edited by Therese Jones, PhD​.  The journal is an international forum for the publication of original peer-reviewed papers that reflect its enlarged focus on interdisciplinary inquiry in medicine and medical education.

Such inquiry can emerge in the following ways: (1) from the medical humanities, which includes literature, history, philosophy and bioethics as well as those areas of the social and behavioral sciences that have strong humanistic traditions; (2) from cultural studies, a multidisciplinary activity involving the humanities; women's, African-American, and other critical studies; media studies and popular culture; and sociology and anthropology, which can be used to examine medical institutions, practice and education with a special focus on relations of power; and (3) from pedagogical perspectives that elucidate what and how knowledge is expressed and transmitted, and the ideological basis of medical education.

The journal is published 4 times a year.  Instructions for authors for
J Med Humanit are available at www.springer.com/10912​.
