Issue 58, 2021 – The Critical French Medical Humanities
Guest Editors : Enda McCaffrey and Dr Aine Larkin
Enda McCaffrey, Nottingham Trent University, and Dr Aine Larkin, Aberdeen University, guest edited this issue on the emerging theme of the French Critical Medical Humanities.
Interdisciplinary in approach but also a bellwether of changing attitudes to medicine, mental and physical health and healthcare practices in France, the critical French Medical Humanities have emerged with a distinctive/critical pulse on the dynamic interface between the embodied experience of illness and disease, and the republican institutions of health and medicine that shape everyday life in France today.
