The Malawian (Hi)Stories and the Medical Humanities provides free public access to digitized special collections, mostly from images, maps, ephemera, articles, manuscripts, texts, audio and video files, a limited book collection, letters, interviews, and more relating to medical humanities research in Malawi.
This archive is intended for public use to promote the research, study and discovery of medical humanities resources in Malawi, and most importantly preserving digital objects.
Anyone can contribute materials as this is intended to be a public resource. We aspire that the contributions to this project remain diverse, and include scholarly research, personal essays, and critical interpretations of artistic and literary works.
This archive was built with funding from the Wellcome Trust as part of the Seed Award project Tili Tonse: ‘”Tili Tonse (We are Listening): Mapping Oral Storytelling Traditions and Narratives with Health in Malawi)’ hosted by the Centre of African Studies at the University of Edinburgh. Contributions will be solicited by the Malawi Medical Humanities Network. The archive is created by Tayo Kopfer and will be maintained by Michael Muti Etter-Phoya, founder of Logos – Open Culture.
