“Synapsis” Seeks Writers

Synapsis (www.medicalhealthhumanities.com) is an online publication designed to bring together humanities scholars and students from across institutions and disciplines in a “department without walls.” The site is founded and edited by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a medical doctor, with support from the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.

We are looking for 8-10 PhD students and junior scholars whose work intersects with the medical humanities to become regular writers for our publication. The commitment is one piece of writing every two months. These pieces can intersect with your research, or be one-off creative explorations. Contributions need not be long (500 to 1000 words is ideal). Please see the journal site for the kind of work our writers produce. More information about Synapsis is also available in the document attached below.

To apply, please write to the assistant editor, Liz Bowen (elb2157@columbia.edu), with a short statement of interest and a CV. The deadline to apply for a writing position is September 1st.
