Trauma: Writing, Art & Affect widens the lens for examining the generation, transmission and representation of trauma beyond that of clinical analysis and traditional trauma theory to embrace both critical and creative perspectives. Papers, roundtable discussion and literary readings encompass a multi-faceted approach to trauma, from the familial to the political, from textual analysis to theories of affect.
Trauma: Writing, Art & Affect is a free event open to academics, students, creative and clinical practitioners and the public. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea provided. RSVP essential.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
