Synapsis Journal

Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal was founded in 2017 by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a physician. Our mission is to develop conversations among diverse people thinking about medical and humanistic ways of knowing, and we see ourselves as a “Department Without Walls” that connects scholars and thinkers from different spheres.

We are grateful for the support of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University and the Society of Fellows/Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.
