"Queen: a journal of rhetoric and power" would like to solicit submissions from the fields of medical history, cross cultural anthropology, gender studies, bioethics, literature and rhetoric on the subject of the formation of the medical subject. What constitutes medicine? health? sickness? How have these concepts changed over time, or how do they differ between cultures? How do certain values constrain medical knowledge, and encourage certain practices? What new ethical crises are we facing as a result of disciplinary values of medicine with respect to subjectivity? Can these crises be overcome by insights from history or different curative approaches and their alternative subject constructs?
We will be publishing a collection of essays on this subject, and welcome submissions from all fields and in any language. There is no deadline. We are an international, interdisciplinary refereed journal specializing in publishing topical issues of pressing public importance.
