Abstract:

This collection of original chapters gives center stage to the concept of
‘narrative’ in medical contexts. The contributors come from the disciplines of
literary and cultural studies, linguistics, psychology, and medicine and work
with texts as diverse as autobiographies, graphic novels, Renaissance medical
treatises and reports, short stories, reflective writing, creative writing,
and online narratives. The interdisciplinary dialogue shows the richness and
scope of the concept ‘narrative’ and demonstrates how crucial it is for
practices in the medical context as well as in the contributing disciplines.
The collection raises awareness of the great variety and multivocality of
narratives on the experience of illness besides paying heed to the many
different positions and angles from which these narratives can be perceived,
read, and analyzed. The wide range of approaches assembled in this collection
provides a comprehensive view on illness and health and on the multiple ways
in which they are represented in narrative.
