Rhetorics of Pain: Historical Reflections

Pain is one of the most influential forces in history. An examination of its many transformations over time provides unique insights into everyday life. This workshop seeks to explore the complex phenomenon of pain from the eighteenth century to the 1960s. We are interested in exploring the biomedical, neurological, psychological, cognitive, and sensory aspects of pain as well as the relationship between bodily sensation and cultural understanding.
