WHAT IS HEALTH HUMANITIES?
Health Humanities is the intersection between human health, illness through the methods and materials of the creative arts and humanities—is one of the most vibrant outcomes of that shift. Health Humanities is an exciting way to discover how the arts and humanities provide us with creative and intellectually challenging ways of representing health, illness, and disability. The arts and humanities—which include literature, visual and performing arts, film, drama, philosophy and history—are especially good at enriching our knowledge of the individual experience of health and illness: often in the form of stories and imaginatively critical works of art –ScopeLab
