Dear colleagues,

we are very pleased to announce the publication of On_Culture's 11th issue entitled “Illness, Narrated,” guest-edited by Silvia Boide, Benjamin Brendel, Maaike Hommes, and Melanie Kreitler. Issue 11 takes into account new approaches and critical perspectives to the intricate relationship between narrative and illness. 

_Article contributions explore the diversification of illness narratives in online spaces (Shannon Sandford, Astrid Joutseno), documentaries (Janin Tscheschel) or pandemic fiction (Birgit Däwes), and deal with the place of marginalized or minority groups within narratives of illness (Dagmar Wernitznig, Emma McKenna).

The issue’s _Essays feature insights into illness narratives and narrative medicine (Monica Greco & Paul Stenner) and illness as a product of social meaning and knowledge-making processes (Jon Arrizabalaga).

The difficulty of putting illness experiences into words is reflected on in the _Perspective by Ann Wallace, who shares her journey with long-COVID, and Kamila Iżykowicz explores how to render visible disability through art and design.
