Workshop “Viral Stories” (25/01/19): registration now open!

I’m delighted to announce that registration is now open for our third and final workshop “Viral Stories”.

For the morning session, we will be joined by two guest speakers: Christopher Bass (Oxford), who will present his work on factitious disorder, and Anita Lavorgna (Southampton), who has worked on Belle Gibson in the context of deviant behaviour. The collaborative textual analysis session in the afternoon will be devoted to HIV/AIDS narratives this time.

Join us if you are interested in factitious illness memoirs, autofiction or, more in general, in the overlap between psychiatry, criminology, and literature!

Attendance is free and lunch will be provided, but places are limited, so please book here.

Looking forward to seeing you in Bristol on 25th January!
