Reviews on The Polyphony

We are delighted to introduce our Reviews section and also to kickstart our call for reviewers.

The Polyphony aims to showcase reviews of books, exhibitions and events that fall within the broad remit of the medical humanities. Reviewers can contribute to The Polyphony in one of two ways – either by reviewing one of the books sent to us by publishers (see the current list below), or by suggesting another book/exhibition/event to review for us. In line with our commitment to interdisciplinarity and inclusion, we are particularly keen to encourage reviewers from a broad range of backgrounds and career stages.

There are no special qualifications needed to review for The Polyphony: we only ask that contributors can locate a book, exhibition or event within its broader place in the medical humanities. We typically ask for reviews to be completed within eight weeks and to be around 800-1000 words in length.

We usually have a number of books available for review. As of 25th September 2018, these include:


Interested in reviewing any of the above titles? Then please do get in touch with us using the form below.

In addition, we actively encourage contributors to suggest books, exhibitions or events which they could then review for us. We have strong connections with various academic presses, and so we are often able to source complimentary review-copies of books for contributors. Please use the form below to send us your suggestions.
