about this item

Hospital Land USA is analyzes hospital culture using images, narratives, to walk students through the experience of medicalization. Using a combination of analysis and anecdote, Simonds deconstructs hospital culture in order to compel critical thinking about medicalization.  Simonds illuminates broad cultural in/sensibilities and conventions around health care, mortality, and identity in ways that are intellectually engaging and  useful for understanding and coping with Hospital Land.
