Maurice Ewing Hall

In this presentation, I will describe current efforts to understand the role of emotions in the history of

medicine and public health. Emotions are central to the experience of patients and healers, experts and

publics. Many policy and normative debates are structured by discourses of feeling (and modes of public

reason that seek to tame these passions). Yet, analyzing affect presents some methodological

complexities. I will draw on several present and ongoing projects to suggest how interdisciplinary and

collaborative investigations can more fully account for emotions as objects of—and lens for—bioethics

and health humanities research
