Page Breaks: The Language of Kindness, with Professor David James

Thursday 4 June 2020 (14:30-15:30)

For accommodations or further information please contact Dorothy Butchard and Toria Johnson


Page Breaks is a regular weekly reading group within the Department of English Literature, and we've moved online for lockdown.

On Thursday 4 June, Professor David James will be joining us to talk through his recent work on medical memoirs, and the intersections of life-writing, activism, and personal confession. David is keen to discuss the questions he’s still grappling with, and is curious to hear how we’ll respond to the extract he has suggested we read for this week, from Christie Watson’s The Language of Kindness.
