Recently The Polyphony posted a series of responses to The Recovery Narrative: Politics and Possibilities of a Genre, an article by Angela Woods (HtV Co-Director), Akiko Hart and Helen Spandler that provides a “critical investigation how recovery narratives are constituted and mobilised, and with what consequences”. In a special Polyphony forum (ed. by Katherine Longhurst), survivors, activists and academics from multiple disciplines engaged with, complicated and challenged ideas raised in The Recovery Narrative.
The responses can be found below:
- Our resistance to recovery narratives by Kaz DeWolfe and the Borderline Academic
- ‘Recovery solutions’: banking on the capitalist temporalities of the mind by Michael Flexer
- Going Global? Recovery Stories and Autobiographical Power in the 21st Century by Neely Myers
- The Sectioned Voice by Caroline Yeo
