How do people conceptualize and write about their mental trauma and
psychological distress? This seminar interrogates personal
narratives of depression, aphasia, head injury, and other forms of
neurological damage and emotional affliction using a variety of
perspectives, including literary and scientific viewpoints. The
works will be considered for their contribution to clinical science,
rehabilitative services, and popular understanding of limits to
human experience.
