Abstract [en]

The term "medical humanities" describes an internationally vibrant and growing academic field comprising broad areas, such as therapeutic uses of arts in health, pedagogical interventions in the medical curricula, and critical resources for performance, reflexivity and practice. This introduction gives an overview of the debates and critiques involved in the pedagogical uses and also a discussion about medical humanies' critical potential for multi- and interdisciplinary research.

The Medical Humaniteis network at Umeå University is presented, together with introductions to seven articles from different humanistic disciplines at Umeå University.
