Event description

Description

This session will be co-hosted with the University of Sheffield’s Medical Humanities Centre. Christine Douglass, an Independent Scholar and Filmmaker currently based in Sheffield, will be sharing some of her cross-disciplinary, collaborative visual research project on breast cancer, including clips from the film. Through her filmmaking practice, she is seeking to problematise the idealisation of illness experiences perpetuated by clinical, social, and cultural discourses, whilst also questioning the apparent ‘ease’ with which we as researchers enter into and investigate the lives of others.
