Jennifer Schulz, senior instructor of Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies, just published “The Impossibility of Witnessing and the Imperative to Listen: Teaching Trauma in an Interdisciplinary Classroom” in Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, volume 36.
Schulz was also invited to submit a chapter entitled “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Clinic” for inclusion in the recently published Routledge Handbook of Well-Being, edited by Kathleen Galvin.
The Routledge Handbook of Well-Being explores diverse conceptualizations of well-being, providing an overview of key issues and drawing attention to current debates and critiques. Schulz’s chapter is a work of creative non-fiction that draws from phenomenology as it tells a story of a community clinic that treats mentally ill and impoverished adults. Written as a series of thirteen scenes inspired by Wallace Stevens’ “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” it imagines new possibilities for treating these clients in terms of the whole of their beings and in the lived contexts of clinical spaces.
