For December Narrative Medicine Rounds, we are honored to host Eyal Press, author of the book DIRTY WORK: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America. In Dirty Work, Press offers a paradigm-shifting view of the moral landscape of contemporary America through the stories of people who perform society’s most ethically troubling jobs: Drone pilots who carry out targeted assassinations; Undocumented immigrants who man the “kill floors” of industrial slaughterhouses; Guards who patrol the wards of the United States’ most violent and abusive prisons, and others. The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn unprecedented attention to essential workers, and to the health and safety risks to which workers in prisons and slaughterhouses are exposed. But Dirty Work examines a less familiar set of occupational hazards: psychological and emotional hardships such as stigma, shame, PTSD, and moral injury.

If you are unable to join for any reason, a recording of our Virtual Narrative Medicine rounds will be made available following the live session on the Narrative Medicine YouTube channel.
