Purpose & Mission Statement

At Boston College, Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary, humanistic, and cultural study of illness, health, healthcare, and the body. The Medical Humanities Journal is a student-run interdisciplinary publication that seeks to engage the Boston College community and beyond in conversation surrounding this emergent field. As an affiliate of the Medical Humanities Minor at Boston College, this journal will facilitate multifaceted thought and collaborative work that takes place in and across the minor. We aim to include Boston College students in this ever-evolving conversation with the belief that their stimulating and rigorous work, such as original research, editorials, and other creative works, merit publication.
