Introduction

This is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural research field that focuses on the relationship between arts, humanities, health, and well-being. The concept of health is studied in relation to (i) language, discourse, and narrative; (ii) literary representations; (iii) philosophy and (applied) ethics; (iv) religion and spirituality; (v) gender studies, and (vi) creative writing and performing arts (e.g. music and visual arts).
