Time, Narrative and Imagination: essays on Paul Auster (one volume collection of essays in English)

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 8:40am
dr Arkadiusz Misztal, English Institute, Gdansk University, Poland

In his introduction to Conversations with Paul Auster James M. Hutchinson observes that Auster's love of experimentation and eagerness to test new boundaries often confound critics' expectations and make his narratives problematic in terms of generic categorization. Moreover, Auster's work "at times seems so implausibly imaginative that critics sometimes tend to discount the seriousness of his art" (xviii). If there is anything like a common thread that runs through all of his stories, it is perhaps Auster's persistent and determined blurring of the line between the real and the imagined. As August Brill, a retired literary critic in Man in the Dark puts it, "the real and the imagined are one".

Trespassing Medicine

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 6:16am
Trespassing Journal

The belief in the necessity to integrate the study of the arts and humanities into medical education and practice has gained wide currency in the last decades, especially with the emergence and development of Medical Humanities. While the "humane" nature of medicine is not necessarily new and is often emphasized by medical practitioners as an important component of their profession, there is nevertheless a certain resistance to inderdisciplinary medical studies. This resistance stems from the idea that medicine should predicate its education and practice on the urgent need of health and life, which has no time and space for deep intellectual deliberations, for philosophizing or for the use of lofty theoretical concepts.
