Here is the second of our recordings from The British Society for Phenomenology’s 2018 workshop 'Embodied Subjects: Phenomenology, Literature, and the Health Humanities'. Dr Christopher Eagle is Senior Lecturer in Health Humanities, Emory University in the Druid Hills neighbourhood of the city of Atlanta, Georgia, United States. His paper is titled ‘Brain Stories: On the Limits of Neuro-Fiction’. The workshop took place in Manchester, UK, during the summer of 2018, and gathered together philosophers, literary scholars, phenomenologists, and practitioners to discuss the significance of embodiment for the health humanities.
