FROM OUR BLOG
Rick de Villiers (University of the Free State, South Africa) examines shame and embarrassment in his blog written for the Shame and Medicine Project: Samuel Beckett's Blushing Body of Work' and reminds us how significant embarrassment can be in health contexts, via the lens of Samuel Beckett's early work.
CALL FOR PAPERS
In this special issue, the JECP are particularly keen to publish articles which critically engage with these moral concepts from multidisciplinary perspectives and frameworks in order to enhance our understanding of both respect and shame, along with their significance for a more optimal delivery of healthcare. They strongly encourage submissions from early career scholars. Papers can be qualitative inquiry, normative and philosophical analysis which provide deeper conceptual and phenomenological understandings of (dis)respect, shame and humiliation, and help improve the practice of medicine.
