Graphic medicine and medical anthropology : an exogamous marriage or paraphyletic groups? / Dana Walrath.

About this work
"When I began my graphic memoir series, Aliceheimers, it focused just on life with my mother Alice before and during dementia. But the revelatory insight that she has retained, even during the late stages of this sickness, has led me to sometimes let the character 'Alice' metamorphose into an odd sort of sage. Here, she and I explore the relationship between Medical Anthropology and Graphic Medicine. Alice's deeply held beliefs from life before dementia combine with her mind opened by dementia, allowing me to imagine a quasi-academic conversation that we never could have had in real life."--From author. http://somatosphere.net/2016/graphic-medicine-and-medical-anthropology.html/
