“This critique of medical humanities principles and practices is much needed and deftly handled. The book reveals the stakes of the problems of narrative and empathy, of individualizing illness and ignoring the structural dimensions of illness and disability by revealing these issues in a context relatively new to medical humanities: digital health.”
—Rebecca Garden, Upstate Medical University, SUNY
“An elegant transdisciplinary critique of the structural inequalities and capitalist goals of emerging digital health technologies and practices. Banner’s methods and resulting insights about the kinds of value and lives generated by digital health technological practices will be particularly invaluable for anyone interested in the rich interdisciplinary zones where humanities, digital studies, and health care converge, as in health and medical humanities. For those who want to understand what happens to patient voice and experience under biocapitalism, this is the book to read.”
—Jacqueline Wernimont, Arizona State University
