This collection is the project of a seminar in Medical Humanities in the department of Science and Technology Studies at Virginia Tech. Dr. Monique Dufour and the students in her two sections of this course are curating a digital collection of medical humanities artifacts. Through our investigations into the history and cultures of mind/body medicine, pain, and narrative medicine, students will serve as curators: they will discover, share and discuss an artifact that illustrates key themes or issues from our readings and inquiry. Each entry in our collection will demonstrate the writer’s thoughtful research, selection, and consideration of its artifact. Together, we will create over the semester a rich collection that will serve as a basis for discussion, a resource for our essays, and as a collective seminar achievement.
