Haunting Our Bodies

About Haunting Our Bodies

Illness, and memories of being ill, can haunt our bodies physically and emotionally. Learn how graphic novels can help repair such trauma, exploring examples and developing your own story in graphic form.

This event is organised by the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society at the University of Edinburgh and is part of the Being Human Festival, the UK’s only festival of the humanities, bringing together universities with creative partners to stage stimulating and engaging activities that make research accessible and relevant.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Haunting Our Bodies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
