Dósis is an online blog and magazine dedicated to exploring the intersection of medical humanities and social justice. The first issue is available here. This web-only publication offers three issues annually featuring essays, commentary, and reviews clustered around a particular theme. In addition, the blog will run news and notes on relevant current trends in medical humanities and social justice.
The call for contributions for our Summer 2018 issue is now open. The theme will be health, gender, and embodiment. To be embodied selves, tied to our human form in sickness and in health, offers unique challenges, physically, socially, psychologically, and culturally. Dósis seeks engagement across disciplines on topics concerning health, gender, and embodiment, but also on other aspects of embodied experience. Of particular interest: issues of access, acceptance, justice, and human rights.
We invite essays, commentary, reviews, and visual art that meditate on these themes. Please go to the submissions webpage for more information on how to contribute. The deadline for this issue is 01 April 2018.
