Attention doctorportal newsletter subscribers,

After December 2018, we will be moving elements from the doctorportal newsletter to MJA InSight newsletter and rebranding it to Insight+. If you’d like to continue to receive a newsletter covering the latest on research and perspectives in the medical industry, please subscribe to the Insight+ newsletter here.

As of January 2019, we will no longer be sending out the doctorportal email newsletter. The final issue of this newsletter will be distributed on 13 December 2018. Articles from this issue will be available to view online until 31 December 2018.

[Comment] Offline: The health of our societies is in peril

A single “s” makes all the difference. In 1969, it was Civilisation: the view of one man, Kenneth Clark, who took his television audience through a personal grand tour of the history of art—the only history of consequence then being western art. In 2018, the pluralism of human creativity was acknowledged in the BBC’s new venture, Civilisations. In place of the perspective of one (white) man, the audience today can enjoy the less linear (and certainly more global) narratives offered by Simon Schama, Mary Beard, and David Olusoga.
