Acclaimed authors to discuss suffering

On March 16 and 17 the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture is sponsoring a colloquium on “Telling Suffering: Pain, Trouble, Trauma and Their Stories.”

Prominent medical professionals and scholars will examine how stories of suffering influence how it is understood, experienced and remembered; and what comparing different stories might reveal about this crucial area of human subjectivity.

The four speakers have written books on suffering, from the perspectives of a sociologist who studies illness (Arthur Frank); a Veterans Affairs staff psychiatrist who has treated post-combat stress disorder for the past 18 years (Jonathan Shay); a professor of anthropology and occupational therapy (Cheryl Mattingly); and a medical ethicist (Paul Komesaroff).
