Medical and Health Humanities was founded in 2017 by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar and Society of Fellows scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a physician. T
heir mission is to develop conversations among diverse people thinking about medical and humanistic ways of knowing.
The newly launched website, Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal, will cover anything that connects medicine with the humanities—critical reading, looking, listening. Their interests are wide ranging: historical précis, new takes on books, investigations into cognition and imagination, and, of course, medical practice.
