Exploring the Nexus of Healing, Stories, and Illness in the Nineteenth Century and Today
Call for Papers, "Exploring the Nexus of Healing, Stories, and Illness in the Nineteenth Century and Today” for “The Nineteenth Century Today: Interdisciplinary, International, Intertemporal" IN-CSA Conference (Durham University in Durham, UK from July 10 - July 12, 2024).

The nineteenth century witnessed profound transformations in medical practices, literary expressions, and societal attitudes toward health and illness. This panel aims to shed light on the intricate relationship between healing, storytelling, and illness (broadly conceived) during this pivotal period. In light of the IN-CSA's interdisciplinary, international, and intertemporal theme, papers exploring the legacies–either across time, disciplines, or cultures--of the dynamic between nineteenth-century narrative, illness, and healing are particularly welcome.
