INSTITUTE FOR DIGITAL HUMANITY

#BurstTheBubble

Covid was a postmodern and post-digital pandemic.

The #BurstTheBubble Initiative focuses on medical communications for a few reasons:
It educates people, humanizes patients, and connects diverse groups on a shared struggle

It lays the groundwork for mutual respect and future interpersonal communication

​It offers an opportunity to connect with and understand other people's stories
Narrative is important to medicine and healing.​
Our main methods for discussing medical communications are twofold:
Our very own Annie Sallee's podcast, College Chronicles, a podcast about everyday life and chronic illness.
Our Medical Narrative Zines, which focus on diversity of medical experience and common ground (Curious what a zine is? Learn more over here.)

COVID was a postmodern and post-digital pandemic.
and now we have a medical communication crisis.
 

  • A complete undermining of scientific truth. 
    With both sides to blame.
     

  • An epidemic of disabled and sick humans -- X, Y, Z, and co-workers -- who suffer from unique communication challenges.
     

  • And -- FWIW -- trauma is a better way to think about our political divisions and heal the country.

So the IDH figured out how to #BursttheBubble
across the political, cultural, and religious divide.

Featured Initiatives

​The College Chronicles were incepted to tackle the intersection of college and everyday life with chronic illness and medical barriers. Hosted and Produced by Annie Sallee, this podcast tackles a variety of topics and welcomes new guests regularly to ensure a diversity of shared experience. ​

The College Chronicles

Whether capturing the in the moment of terror during the pandemic, bringing the left and right together for community forums, or asking both sides of the vaccine debate the hard questions (while still talking to everyone), IDH TV provided a unique forum between groups trapped behind COVID's informational divide.

IDH TV and the IDH Journalism Network

Our programmers and politicians can't fix privacy in time to save us.

And the idh has proven bi-partisan solutions -- for lawyers, teachers, policymakers, and programmers -- that we can teach to anyone.

 

The privacy crisis is scaring the hell out of the IDH students.
On both sides of the political aisle.
