Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This hybrid course in health humanities and creative nonfiction explores the theme of repair by approaching illness narratives as encounters for deep listening. As both art and advocacy, creative essays (from assay, meaning to attempt, to practice by way of trial) open a space for generative conversations about what is broken in the U.S. healthcare system. Through close reading and creative writing workshops, students will engage questions about medical and cultural constructions of suffering bodies (gendered and racialized, disabled and neurodiverse, neglected and ungrievable). For longer description and instructor bio visit the Society for the Humanities website.

When Offered Fall.
