A screenshot of the new blog Corpus: Conversations about Medicine and Life.
Corpus: Conversations about Medicine and Life is a new blog, co-edited by University of Otago historian Professor Barbara Brookes and writer Sue Wootton.
Corpus links practitioners from a range of disciplines in conversation about health and illness. The blog will feature a wide range of perspectives on health and medical practice, especially reflective or creative work which fleshes out the biomedical version of illness and disability.
Contributors include doctors, nurses, and other health professionals, as well as historians, linguists, English scholars, classicists, poets, musicians, dancers, and artists.
The blog launched today with four articles:
- Muses and marble Jamie Trower
- Suffering patient, suffering doctor Sue Wootton
- Lifestyle Advice and a Solution for one of Shakespeare's Equivocators? Joe Baker
- With these gestures, we somehow defy death Barbara Snook
Future articles will be published each Monday, at corpus.nz.
