Online Forum: Digital humanities/medicine

“Can Digital Humanities change the way we study health and practice medicine? How do digital reconfigurations or big data impact and expand investigations into health and medicine’s history or trajectory?”

These are the questions explored in a series of position papers on MediaCommons, posted by Lori Jones (U Ottawa), Travis Chi Wing Lau (Penn), Molly Nebiolo (Northeastern), Sarah Moesch (U Maryland), Olivia Banner (UT-Dallas), Kirsten Ostherr (Rice), Jacob Steere (C of Charleston), Lisa Smith (U Essex), and Amanda Daly Berman (Salem State).

The statements are open access, but site registration is required to post comments.
