Pain, Referred and Adapted

Physical pain, as a subjective experience, is notoriously difficult for the sufferer (e.g. patient) to convey to others, or for an observing other (e.g. clinician) to fully apprehend. As an often overwhelming and isolating experience, pain also generates endless creative efforts—from pain scales to paintings to poetry—to communicate it better. This lecture explores these efforts by considering two specific examples of pain represented through the interiority of narrative texts and what happens to the pain when those two texts are adapted to the external perspective of film.

This lecture will be held in-person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
