Sile, Agnese – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
The status of photography within medical arts or humanities is still insecure.

Through analysis of Joshua Lutz's "Hesitating…

Gurung, Kesherie – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
Self-harm, or self-mutilation, is generally viewed in academic literature as a pathological act, usually born out of trauma and/or a psychological and personality defect. Individuals who engage in self-harm are usually seen as damaged, destructive, and pathological. While self-harm is not a desirable act, this paper argues through the narratives…

Ryan, Sara – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
The importance of witnessing broken narratives and somehow writing or representing these is matched by the challenges associated with trying to do this within a context of normativity and expected academic practice.

Nolte, Lizette – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
The experience of psychosis can sweep into a life like a violent storm. In this paper, I first attempt to fully imagine the experience of such a storm by drawing on first person accounts and then consider the clinical encounter between mental health practitioners and those who find themselves amidst this storm. I reflect on ways we can better…

Dragojlovic, Ana – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
This article explores the relationship between the affective intensities of screen media and its potential to serve as an affective force for the transmission of intergenerational trauma.

Healthcare practitioners are often presented with vulnerable encounters where their professional experience is insufficient when dealing with patients who suffer from illnesses such as chronic pain.

Jones, Adrian N. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
Everyone who writes anything--even non-fiction!--knows you discover things as you go along. Writing is a heuristic. Writing history is no different. Yet senior-secondary and tertiary exponents of the teaching and learning of history are often strangely tongue-tied on the matter of writing and thinking as engines of discovery in historical studies…
