“Texts as Symptoms”, the first workshop in the series “Illness as Fiction: Textual Afflictions in Print and Online“, will take place on 9th July 2018 at the University of Bristol. There will be three presentations in the morning – Sue Vice (Sheffield), Katrina Longhurst (Leeds), and Maria Vaccarella (Bristol) – followed by a collaborative textual analysis session in the afternoon.

Join us if you are interested in factitious illness memoirs or, more in general, in the blurry line between autobiography and fiction!

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

For dietary and accessibility requirements, please send an email to maria.vaccarella@bristol.ac.uk
