Lecture:

LET'S FIGHT? METAPHORS IN ILLNESS NARRATIVES
By Anita Wohlmann
Time: Tuesday, October 18, 2022, 6:00 p.m.
Location: SZ 15.21. RESOWI Center, Universitätsstraße 15, Bauteil A, 2nd floor
Registration until October 15 to: cirac(at)uni-graz.at

Metaphors enable multiple strategies of alternative use, repurposing, recycling, and creative misuse - practices that can be traced in autobiographical texts and transferred to everyday (medical) life. After a brief presentation of the study Metaphor in Illness Writing: Fight and Battle Reused (2022), we will explore examples from medical practice together with the author Anita Wohlmann and rethink established metaphors in new and different ways.

Workshop:

NARRATIVE MEDICINE: LITERARY TEXTS AND REFLECTIVE WRITING IN THE CONTEXT OF ILLNESS, HEALING, AND CARE
With Anita Wohlmann
Time: Wednesday, October 19, 2022. 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: HS 23.02. Meerscheinschlössl, Mozartgasse 3, ground floor
Registration until October 7 to: cirac(at)uni-graz.at (Limited number of participants!)

In the interdisciplinary workshop, the theories and goals of the workshop will be presented in the form of short impulses and critical aspects will be discussed. In addition, experiences from German-speaking countries will be recounted. Practice, however, is the main focus of the one-day event: participants are invited to try out the basic model of Narrative Medicine - attention, representation, affiliation - for themselves and to reflect on it together.

The folder with further information can be found here.
Talk and workshop will be held in German.
