We’re excited to announce a special placebo/nocebo issue of Ars Medica – a literary journal that explores the interfaces between arts and healing (ars-medica.ca). Ada and I are co-editing the special issue and invite those with an interest in placebo/nocebo and medical arts and humanities to submit your work! Ars Medica publishes poetry, narrative, creative non-fiction, fiction, and visual and other digital media arts and in the fall of 2017 it will be all about placebo and nocebo. Explore with us issues of embodiment, the “cut” of what harm vs. what heals, ritual, meaning responses, and the cultural situatedness of health, healing (and harming!). Call is attached!
