Public Lecture: Suffering, Dialogue and Narrative Research by Dr. Arthur Frank

The Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing presents a public lecture with Dr. Arthur Frank.

This lecture updates two previous journal articles: “Can We Research Suffering?” published in 2001, and “What is Dialogical Research, and Why Should We Do It?” published in 2005. Each questions and implicates the other. The Idea of dialogue offers the best opening Dr. Frank has found to doing research on suffering, or put the other way around, the problem of researching requires a conception of and commitment to dialogue as both an ethic and a method of research. The lecture explores how those ideas develop in narrative research specifically.

Wednesday, June 12, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM, Health Sciences Building 35
