Narrative learning and reflective writing have been shown to enhance physicians’ empathy, improve clinical interview skills, and help practitioners understand patients’ illness experiences. This chapter describes a global health humanities workshop that taught students to use an art technique (A Humument by Tom Phillips) to process materials from a sexual and reproductive health archive, culminating in reflective writing and public presentations. The workshop was developed through an interdisciplinary collaboration among a global health educator, a library archival curator, and a poet. The chapter describes the archival context, pedagogical goals, student learning, lessons learned, and future plans for using this approach.
