The first major interdisciplinary workshop on voice-hearing was held at Durham University on November 24 – 25, funded by the Wellcome Trust, the Durham Institute of Advanced Study, and the Centre for Medical Humanities.
The workshop welcomed 45 experts by experience and profession, from the fields of cognitive neuroscience, theology, literary studies, psychosocial studies, clinical psychology, the arts, philosophy, psychiatry and the medical humanities. We were also delighted to be joined by IAS Fellows Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher, world-renowned experts on voice-hearing and founders of the international Intervoice network.
Further reports on the ideas discussed at the workshop will be posted here shortly. The meantime, resources for participants are available here.
