Bloomsbury’s Critical Interventions in the Medical and Health Humanities addresses major topics and debates relating to health, culture and human experience. The series focuses on investigating how knowledge in the Arts and Humanities engages, complicates or refutes
biomedical modes, encompassing research in Literary and Cultural Studies, History of Medicine, Gender Studies, Bioethics, Primary Health Care, Health Sciences and Psychiatry. Through monographs, shorter provocations and edited collections it publishes innovative and
ambitious works which offer critical interventions in the field of Medical and Health Humanities and explore intersections with other interdisciplinary areas, including Cognitive Humanities, Environmental Humanities, Animal Studies and Digital Humanities.
