Speaker(s): Eimear McBride, Dr Kaye Mitchell
Chair: Dr Danielle Sands

Recorded on 9 January 2018 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Is it possible to express the richness, variety, and depth of our inner experience, our thoughts and feelings? If so, what is the best way to do it? Should we turn to literature or to philosophy? And what can they teach each other about understanding, expressing, and performing the self? In this event, award-winning novelist Eimear McBride will discuss these questions with writer and academic Kaye Mitchell.

Eimear McBride is an award-winning novelist, author of A Girl is a Half-formed Thing and The Lesser Bohemians.

Kaye Mitchell is Senior Lecturer in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, University of Manchester.

Danielle Sands (@DanielleCSands) is a Lecturer in Comparative Literature and Culture at Royal Holloway, University of London and a Forum for European Philosophy Fellow.

The Forum for European Philosophy (@ForumPhilosophy) is an educational charity that organises a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK.
