The Language of Disease Seminar

16:00 - 18:00
3 March 2021

Event details

Dr Steven Wilson’s research seeks to demonstrate some of the ways in which modern French literature, from the nineteenth century to the present, contributes to cultural and global understandings of illness, disease, pain, medical practice and experience, and death. It is situated at the interface of French Studies and the Medical Humanities and is concerned in particular with the ways in which literary configurations of the pathological body draw from medical, philosophical, religious and aesthetic languages.
