Grief: A Study of Human Emotional Experience Lecture

Psychotherapist and writer Juliet Rosenfeld will join us to discuss her moving account of bereavement and profound grief, The State of Disbelief: A Story of Death, Love and Forgetting (published February, 2020). Juliet's book details her experiences navigating the illness and death of her husband, and draws upon Freud’s essay Mourning and Melancholia. This interactive event will be chaired by members of the University of York research project ‘Grief: A Study of Human Emotional Experience’ and will give you the opportunity to hear more about Juliet’s work and pose your questions to her.

Grief: A Study of Human Emotional Experience is a research project in the Department of Philosophy, University of York investigating what it is to experience grief.
