Blog Series 2021-22
Starting in autumn 2021, we invited responses to Mark M. Smith’s A Sensory History Manifesto (2021) from a range of interdisciplinary and international perspectives related broadly to themes of health, medicine, senses and space. This blog series is funded by the UKRI Sensing Spaces of Healthcare project, which paid for contributors to receive a copy of the book. We will have 10 of these blogs in due course. The blogs are listed here, in reverse date order:
- Marie Allitt, Divided Ends and Interdisciplinarity: A literary medical humanities response to a sensory history manifesto (August 2022).
- Sarah Yardley, Senses matter because people matter: The value of sensory history for improving healthcare systems (April 2022)
- Sara Honarmand Ebrahimi, Beyond an ‘Imperial Vision’: A Response to A Sensory History Manifesto (December 2021)
- Jonathan Reinarz, Response to ‘A Sensory History Manifesto’ 1: Senses, Biography & Medical History (October 2021).
