HLTD54H3: Toronto's Stories of Health and Illness

This seminar course explores stories of health, illness, and disability that are in some way tied to the City of Toronto. It asks how the Canadian healthcare setting impacts the creation of illness narratives. Topics will include major theorizations of illness storytelling (“restitution”, “chaos,” and “quest” narratives); narrative medicine; ethics and digital health storytelling.
