Biography Workshop

Biography Workshop
Date: 26th February 2015
Venue: Hedley Bull Seminar Room 3
Time 12.00-2pm
The Workshop aims to start conversations on a range of contemporary issues significant to both life-writing and, more generally, to the humanities such as:

  • Is biography simply a poetic form of biology?
  • What is the line between biography and psycho-analysis?
  • Does a leader flourish or fall through the telling of a life-story?
  • Do personal details undermine big ideas?
  • Iconoclasm: important cultural critique or misanthropic hatchet-job?

All points of view or disciplinary perspectives are warmly welcomed.

The Workshop will be led by Sophie Scott-Brown
