Representing Pain: Narrative & Fragments - A symposium at Lancaster University

Date: Friday 17 August 2018, 09:00

The Symposium is part of the AHRC-funded research network Translating Chronic Pain, which is exploring challenges pain experience poses to traditional narrative representation, and the value of rethinking narrativity or embracing unconventional or fragmentary narrative forms. The symposium will explore broad debates around narrativity in medical humanities, the potential of short-form narration or unconventional forms of illness narration, the positivity imperative in illness narration, challenges of chronic pain representation, and the way ‘entanglements’ with fields such as disability studies or trauma theory may enrich critical medical humanities approaches to these questions.
