Defining, researching and understanding the concept of ‘violence’ is challenging and contested. At the centre of debates around violence is the enduring problematic of mind/body dualism. What is the effect of bodily violence on the mind? How do we categorise and understand the intersections of body and mind through the experiences of violence? What can the emerging field of health humanities offer to understandings of mind-body-violence?
On 28th June 2018 we are holding a one-day symposium at the University of Edinburgh, funded by the British Academy, which will provide an engaging and innovative forum in which to explore and interrogate intersections between violence, mind and body.
Starts: Thursday, June 28th 2018
