PathoGraphics project extended!
We are pleased and proud to announce that the Einstein Foundation Berlin has approved a two-year extension to the PathoGraphics project. Now prolonged until February 2021, Einstein Visiting Fellow Susan Merrill Squier and the FU-based academic team will continue their research on the aesthetics and politics of illness narratives in both contemporary comics and literature.
Over the next two years, PathoGraphics plans to look further into the social embeddedness of illness experiences, particularly in written and drawn narratives of loss relating to trauma, bereavement and dementia. The team also looks forward to establishing closer bonds with the Charité Institute for the History of Medicine and Ethics in Medicine.
