Abstract: The Health Humanities is a new field that has grown out of and expanded on the work begun in the “medical humanities,” an area of study established in the mid-twentieth century. This paper discusses the evolution of the field and examines the effects that changes in publishing may hold for its continued development, including open access, pre-print servers, textbooks, ebooks, blogs, and other innovations that might presage a non-print—and even post-text—future.
