We are delighted to continue promoting a broad range of reviews at The Polyphony.
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. All of our book and other reviews at The Polyphony can be found here.
We usually also have a number of books available for review. As of 18 March 2019, these include:
- Gibson, Nigel C and Beneduce, Robert (eds), Frantz Fanon, Psychiatry and Politics.
- Leys, Ruth, The Ascent of Affect: Genealogy and Critique.
- Seth, Suman, Difference and Disease: Medicine, Race, and Eighteen-Century British Empire.
- Ferguson, Laura, Grogan, Katie and Ofri, Danielle (eds), Art & Anatomy: Drawings.
- de Montalk, Stephanie Potocka, Communicating Pain: Exploring Suffering Through Language, Literature and Creative Writing.
- Engelmann, Lukas, Mapping AIDS: Visual Histories of an Enduring Epidemic.

In addition, we actively encourage contributors to suggest books, exhibitions, events or special issues of academic journals 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.
