Illness in the Academy: A Collection of Pathographies by Academics

Front Cover
Kimberly Rena Myers
Purdue University Press, 2007 - Biography & Autobiography - 467 pages
Illness in the Academy investigates the deep-seated, widespread belief among academics and medical professionals that lived experiences outside the workplace should not be sacrificed to the ideal of objectivity those academic and medical professions so highly value. The 47 selections in this collection illuminate how academics bring their intellectual and creative tools, skills, and perspectives to bear on experiences of illness. The selections cross genres as well as bridge disciplines and cultures.
