How do people conceptualize and write about their mental trauma and
psychological distress? The 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.
