Bryan Mukandi, PhD is a Lecturer on Medical Ethics at the University of Queensland. He earned his Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Queensland, and his Master of Arts with First Class Honors at the National University of Ireland in Galway. He also earned a Master of Arts degree from Queen’s University in Belfast, and a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of Zimbabwe. He is an academic philosopher, health humanities scholar and, once upon a time, he practiced medicine in a resource-poor, sub-Saharan African setting. His trans-disciplinary research aims towards gaining greater conceptual clarity around the well-being of people belonging to marginalized groups. The humanities are crucial to his work because of the creative possibilities, and maybe even the glimpse of freedom, that they offer.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
