DetailsDo stories matter? Increasingly, people seem to be turning to stories for answers. But can stories make sense of reality - or replace theory? Or do some events and feelings always drop out of the story? What is the therapeutic, artistic and political value of stories? Speakers include: Stephen Frosh, author and Professor of Psychology at Birkbeck College; Trisha Greenhalgh, GP and Senior Lecturer in primary care at the Royal Free and UCL Medical Schools, and coeditor of Narrative Based Medicine; Jeffrey Weeks, author and Professor of Sociology at South Bank University, and film-maker, Sally Potter, best known for Orlando and The Tango Lesson. In the chair is Corinne Squire, codirector of the Centre for Narrative Research at the University of East London.
