Haunting Our Bodies

18 November, 2019, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Illness and memories of being ill can ‘haunt’ our bodies physically and emotionally. Comics and graphic novels are an excellent medium for storytellers to engage with and begin to repair such trauma. This hands-on workshop explores trauma and wellness through examples from graphic novels including Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and Charles Burns’ Black Holes and helps you learn to tell your story in graphic form.

This event is part of the ‘Beyond Bodies’ series by the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society at the University of Edinburgh.
