‘Their voices made them do it? Media stereotypes, violence and voice-hearing,’ Palace Green Library Café, 14 December 2016, from 5 – 7pm.

Join our panel of experts for a lively discussion of the politics and ethics of representing unusual and often stigmatised experiences. Facilitated by Dr Angela Woods, Senior Lecturer in Medical Humanities at Durham University and Co-Director of Hearing the Voice.
