Cultures of Anxiety

A two-day interdisciplinary conference responding to recent trends in the study of anxiety; considering how our evolving understanding of it as a cultural condition might affect the ways in which we represent, discuss, and deal with it.

The End of the Book

How do we know when we have reached the end of a book? What do we, as readers, expect to find at the end? This one-day, interdisciplinary conference at the University of Bristol on Friday 18 November 2016, aims to consider how answers to these questions have evolved over time.
