PhD Workshop with Arthur W. Frank

Date: 21 May 2014, 10:00 – 12:00 pm
Location: Baines Wing (2.37), School of Healthcare

Light refreshments provided

Arthur W.  Frank has a global reputation for shaping the field of narrative inquiry in the field of medical sociology.  His ground breaking contributions include The Wounded Storyteller, one of the most cited works on illness experience and narrative ethics, and Frank’s much acclaimed At the Will of the Body: Reflections on Illness introduced the now familiar concept of ‘the remission society’.

We are delighted that Arthur Frank has accepted an invitation to lead a workshop for PhD students in the School of Healthcare (Baines Wing 2.37) between 10.00 and 12.00.  This will be of interest to PhD students who are interested in qualitative research methods, narrative inquiry, ethics, identity, and the illness experience.

If you are interested in attending, please your confirm attendance by email to Ruth Allcroft (Email:R.Allcroft@leeds.ac.uk) no later than 18 April. Please also let us know if you have any access requirements.
