Thursday 14 October 2021, 5.00PM to 6:00 PM
We are delighted to invite you to the first reading group meeting for the new CModS Research Strand in Mental Health & the Memoir, at 17:00-18:00 on Thursday 14th October (via Zoom). Our inaugural session will focus on Ann Cvetkovich’s Depression: A Public Feeling (2012) to consider the value of memoir as both a topic of study and as a research method in its own right.
We will be focusing on the following extracts from Cvetkovich’s book, accessible via this Google Folder:
Please note: Due to the subject matter of the research strand, our reading groups will frequently engage with sensitive and complex topics. We want these reading groups to be a lively space for interdisciplinary discussions on contemporary life-writing, but are committed to respecting the lived experiences represented in the content. As such, we ask for your collaboration in maintaining a safe and supportive environment.
