Event description

Description

Woolf’s enduring recognition as a key modernist, this talk will suggest, is not only due to formal devices such as the stream of consciousness, but her intersection with a very specific moment in medical history. To find out more join us for a talk about Bloomsbury's most famous resident, dentistry, mental health, and toothsome characters by Birkbeck’s Peter Fifield. English idioms routinely connect eating with mental work: food for thought, getting your teeth into a problem, a meaty idea. But how can we read the teeth of people who think for a living?

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.
