Tendon: A Medical Humanities Zine

Tendon is a literary and visual arts magazine that aims to create space for ideas and projects inspired by the medical humanities, including the social sciences, the natural sciences, history of the body, and science and technology studies. Supported by the JHU Center for Medical Humanities and Social Medicine, Tendon tends to the seen and the unseen; links the concrete and the abstract; and explores sites of connection, traversal, and entanglement. Tendon creates a space where sensory pleasure and knowledge co-exist, and will publish biannually beginning in Spring 2019.

 

Through Tendon, the JHU Center for Medical Humanities and Social Medicine wishes to create a space for sharing ideas and projects across social medicine and the medical humanities; facilitate connections among academics, artists, scientists, and professionals from every discipline, as well as members of the local and international community; and invite artists to widen access to their work, and those in medicine and the sciences to compose work more creatively.
