  • Caring for the Terminally Ill: An Interpretation of Time, Existence, and
           Mortality

    • Authors: Randip Dhaliwal; Dr. Shelley Raffin Bouchal
      Abstract: In this paper, the first author explores the complexity of caring for palliative care patients approaching end of life in response to the statement nursing is an interpretive practice. A real-life scenario is used to unravel the exploration of time, existence, and mortality. The author proclaims that the question of death remains unanswered, and the call to palliative care nursing requires an extensive examination of one’s own temporality to cultivate an understanding of patients experiences of grief, legacy, and meaning making in the context of terminal illness.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part Six. Bethany’s Story: Layers of Meaning

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This six installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Bethany’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the documentary film on which the series is based). In the film, Bethany demonstrates how a digital story can become both a signpost and a monument in the life of an Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivor by indicating how they have changed, providing direction for their future selves, and creating a reminder of the meaningful moments that happened along the way. Her experience also reveals how DST can help participants craft a story with many layers of intentional meanings while the plurivocity of word, image and compositional elements of DST enables a profound hermeneutic excess (i.e., x = x+) and ensures that what is contained in a digital story is always more than what was intended by the storyteller. Using the screenwriting framework of the “said, unsaid, and unsayable,” and Nicholas Davey’s concept of “aquifers of meaning,” I (Lang) demonstrate how a digital story artwork can act as an artesian well, providing AYAs and their friends and family an encounter with the “unsayable,” by bringing to the surface what has been mute and beyond awareness.

  • Death, Dying, and Credibility in Long-Term Care: How Healthcare Aides Were
           the Voiceless Other During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Katherine Stelfox
      Abstract:   Confronted by an unprecedented number of deaths in Long-Term Care (LTC) during the COVID-19 pandemic, society had no choice but to engage in a public discourse about the state of death and dying in LTC, and the staff who were caring for residents: healthcare aides. Despite being places where older adults die, death and dying has largely been hidden within LTC homes, serving to complicate and conceal healthcare aides’ experiences at a time when LTC residents were visibly dying. Although being the subject of public discourse, healthcare aides remained voiceless during the pandemic, their experiences of caring for dying residents overlooked by the testimony of experts. Instead of healthcare aides being invited into a conversation to share their unique knowledge of death and dying in LTC, namely through that of touch and practical wisdom, they experienced a lack of epistemic credibility, having been served a testimonial injustice.

  • The Other in The Self: The Ontological Metaphoricity of Language

    • Authors: Dr. Cristina Valencia Mazzanti; Dr. Melissa Freeman
      Abstract: Through text and illustrations, I (first author) theorize language as a being that becomes and revels in its plurality, illuminating the inherent and necessary aesthetic and multimodal dimensions of any struggle toward meaning. To do so, I start by foregrounding my own experiences with the diversity that characterizes language to portray the significance of studying its ontology and plurality. I then identify philosophical hermeneutics as a practical metatheory that centrally positions language as a medium for understanding. From a hermeneutic perspective, language manifests as a network of meaning that is constituted through an ontological metaphoricity that echoes a capacity to both present and represent phenomena. This metaphoricity of language is then discussed in terms of its linguistically, speculative, and dialogic dimensions. I pose that language discloses an otherness in ourselves that is fostered in a capacity for renewed understandings and meanings that are yet becoming.

  • Lot’s Wife: An Exploration of Nursing and Calls, Guided by Two Poems

    • Authors: Dr. Graham McCaffrey
      Abstract: The article is a discussion on the theme of "the call" that formed the basis for Dr. Ted George's series of presentations at the Canadian Hermeneutic Institute (CHI) in 2021. It takes up two poems, both entitled "Lot's Wife," that are interpreted from the point of view of nurses who have to make decisions routinely in response to the demands of patients in actual settings of practice. The poems, by Anna Akhmatova and Wislawa Szymborska, treat the theme in contrasting ways that allows for a series of interpretive reflections, first considering a two-sided contrast between external regulation and anguish, and secondly a diverse array of "calls" to decision and action. A version of the article was first presented at CHI 2021.

  • Developing Gadamerian Virtues Against Epistemic Injustice: The Epistemic
           and Hermeneutic Dimensions of Ethics

    • Authors: Haley Burke
      Abstract: In her groundbreaking text Epistemic Injustice, Miranda Fricker evaluates types of harms incurred by individuals undergoing unrecognized and inarticulable oppression. At issue in epistemic and hermeneutic injustice are prejudicial comportments to and evaluations of reality. In the following, I focus on hermeneutic and epistemic injustice in relation to the formation of intellectual and ethical virtues. When reading Fricker and Hans-Georg Gadamer’s hermeneutics together, there is a clear pathway to improve ethical development. In particular, ethical development ought to cultivate the proper virtues that promote understanding. Gadamer’s emphasis on the qualities of a researcher and the epistemic virtues that Fricker highlights reveal an educative path for addressing injustice. In other words, cultivating these virtues counteracts injustice wherein recognition and articulation of reality is challenged or at issue.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part Three. Kelsey’s Story: Breaking
           Cancer’s Grasp

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This third installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Kelsey’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the documentary film on which the series is based). In addition to providing a compelling exploration of a relatively common occurrence of Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors, delayed diagnosis, Kelsey’s involvement in the film illustrated the potential for DST to help participants explore, name, and represent their inner emotional experience. Her storyline illuminated how difficult it can be for AYAs to both understand their “true feelings” and share them with others in a way that moves beyond a surface level, “hashtag” description of emotion (e.g. #sad). I (Lang) conclude by discussing how the three primary modes of narrative engagement in the DST process (external, internal, and reflexive) could help AYAs cultivate a deeper understanding of their emotional cancer experiences, and in doing so, break cancer’s grasp on their life, by grasping it instead.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part Four. Derek’s Story: More Than Words

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This fourth installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Derek’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the documentary film on which the series is based). In contrast to other workshop participants, Derek’s primary goal for his digital story was to convey a specific, pre-determined meaningful moment from his cancer experience in a more compelling manner. Building from the image system Derek utilized in his digital story, and further contextualizing the events he describes, this interpretive article depicts the unique cancer survivorship experiences of Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors and demonstrates the possibilities of DST to help AYAs release “bottled up” emotions before they become rancid (i.e., release suppressed or repressed emotions before they transform into diagnosed psychosocial co-morbidity). Finally, Derek’s experience demonstrates how the multi-modal nature of DST can enable AYAs to incite an emotional response from their audience that can in turn confirm and affirm the life lessons embedded in their cancer experience.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part Five. Kenzie’s Story: Periods and Ellipses

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This fifth installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Kenzie’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the documentary film on which the series is based). Kenzie's storyline revealed how culturally accepted language and metanarratives around health and wellness can create dissonance for Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors as they attempt to share their experiences with others. Alternatively, the genuine conversation inherent in the Story Circle, and throughout the DST process, could promote and stimulate the re-storying of ill-fitting, “hand-me-down” cancer narratives. Specifically, the reflective intensity and co-creative nature of DST could facilitate the discovery of deeper truths, or new truths, in healthcare stories while the narrative structure and creative limitations of a digital story could empower AYAs to craft a closed ending to a perpetually open-ended cancer survivorship experience.

  • War on Weight: Capturing the Complexities of Weight with Hermeneutics

    • Authors: Dr. Shelly Russell-Mayhew; Dr. Nancy J Moules, Dr. Andrew Estefan
      Abstract: Purpose: In professional practice, body weight issues are typically considered from an individual-level standpoint. In contrast to this dominant perspective, we highlight that body weight has prominent social, economic, and political influences and connotations. An examination of the social complexity of weight provides opportunity to shift focus from individual to societal and structural influences on perceptions of weight.  Methods: Seven renowned experts in weight-related issues with at least 10-years-experience in various fields from across Europe, Australia, the United States, and Canada participated in interviews about their professional experience with weight. Interviews were analyzed using hermeneutic methods via an iterative interpretive process.  Results: The interviews revealed a battlefield, a war waged on weight. War emerged as an overall metaphor that included aspects of: war on obesity, bodies as battlefields, war camps, war fronts, entrenchment and negotiation and, finally, the phenomenon of “no man’s land.” Conclusions: In many ways, language itself limits us from capturing the complexities of weight. The war metaphor provides a way of understanding the intensity of the firestorm surrounding the construct of weight. New understandings from what we might refer to as veterans of the war on weight offer hope for transformation, not just win or lose, but a hermeneutic wager of possibility.             Keywords: weight, body image, weight bias, hermeneutics, qualitative research

  • Gadamerian Hermeneutics with Intersectionality as an Analytical Lens

    • Authors: Roya Haghiri-Vijeh; Dr. Carol McDonald
      Abstract: For decades, hermeneutics has been used as a qualitative research approach to enhance understanding of the experiences of individuals within a particular context. However, after reviewing the literature, it became evident that only a few published articles use intersectionality as an analytical lens along with Gadamerian hermeneutics. This article draws on examples from a 2021 study that explored experiences of LGBTQI+ migrants with healthcare providers. Utilizing the philosophical underpinnings of Gadamerian hermeneutics and the theoretical foundations of intersectionality, the confluences and the tensions between these two approaches is explored. Moreover, suggestions are provided for how intersectionality as an analytical lens can expand understandings and interpretations of research findings using Gadamerian hermeneutics.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part One. Amanda's Story: Wound Care

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This first installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Amanda’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial to the series, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the film). Although attenuated, Amanda’s involvement in the film provides valuable insight into important safeguards that should be in place when using DST in healthcare settings. Using the metaphor of broken bones and open wounds, this interpretive article highlights the importance of recognizing chaos narratives and unstoried emotions in the early stages of the DST process. It concludes with three practical “wound care” measures that can help safeguard participant wellbeing as they find, tell, craft, and share their digital story.

  • Emerging Horizons, Part Two. Harmony’s Story: Answering the Big
           Question

    • Authors: Dr. Michael J Lang; Dr. Catherine M Laing
      Abstract: This second installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Harmony’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial to the series, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the film). In this article I lean on the philosophy of Paul Ricœur to suggest that 1) the metaphorical possibilities of DST could enable Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors to come to a deeper understanding of their own cancer experiences and 2) the process of “emplotment” in the creation of a digital story has the power to transform the random and coincidental, pre-narrative experience of cancer into a meaningful whole. I conclude by discussing how attaching meaning to, and learning from, an otherwise meaningless cancer experience through the DST process, can help AYA cancer survivors construct their own answer to the “big question” of cancer in young adulthood.

  • An Ephemeral Light: The Question of Death in the Artwork of Children who
           are Dying

    • Authors: Katherine Wong
      Abstract: The question of death, and what happens after, is a query with no certain answer. Philosophers, scientists, artists, poets, and healthcare providers have grappled with the question of death and how best to answer it. Children with life-limiting illnesses (LLI) who face death in childhood are in a unique situation where their typical sources of information (i.e., the adults in their lives) may not be able to come up with a suitable answer when asked what happens when we die. As Plato stated, there is an inner child in all of us who is not totally convinced by assurances of an afterlife. What children with LLI understand of death and dying is not always easily conveyed in everyday language, but can be revealed in their artistic forms of expression. Artwork, poetry, and stories seem to carry the unintelligibility of death so that both children and adults may cope with it. Keywords: children, life-limiting illness, understanding death, pediatric palliative care, hermeneutic philosophy
