Event description

Description

The emotional impacts of a cancer diagnosis can be many and varied. In this special event for the Being Human Festival of Humanities, we explore patient experiences of cancer, past and present.

Elizabeth Toon (University of Manchester),"A conspiracy of pretence": learning to cope with mastectomy in twentieth-century Britain

Sue Ziebland (Health Experiences Research Group, University of Oxford), Healthtalk.org as an online resource for people with cancer, and their family and friends

Healthtalk.org is a website providing information and support for a range of health issues through people's real life experiences. Thousands of people have shared their experiences on film to help others understand what it’s really like to have a health condition such as breast cancer or arthritis.

Venue: Arts Two, Room 2.17. Get directions and a campus map here.

Doors open at 6pm and the talk will start at 6.30.
