>Special Issue of Literature and Medicine
>Health and Human Rights
>Volume 25, Number 1
>Issue Editor: Priscilla Wald
>
>We are interested in essays that explore the intersection of health and
>human rights. What questions are currently being asked at that juncture,
>and how and why might we ask them through the study of literature
>(broadly conceived)? We welcome essays that consider narratives about
>health and human rights as well as the narratives that structure the
>concepts of health and human rights. Essays might explore why certain
>stories have dominated the field (for example, narratives of heroism
>and/or atrocities) and with what effect? What other stories could be
>told and what might be the outcome of those retellings? We would welcome
>essays that take a literary critical or cultural analytic approach to
>non-literary texts, exploring the language and images through which the
>concepts of health and human rights are currently imagined. We are
>especially interested in essays with a concentration on global health
>and the discourse of human rights and on questions of justice and
>access. This special issue is motivated by our sense that, in
>significant ways, health and human rights are reconstituting each other,
>and we believe that a study of this dynamic could yield important
>insight into contemporary understanding (and deployment) of both terms.
