FLAUBERT'S BRAIN

Epilepsy and Representation

featuring Deborah Jenson, Duke University

Date: Friday, March 1, 2013
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Stone Auditorium
Location: uptown campus

Deborah Jenson is Professor of Romance Studies and Global Health, and a Faculty Affiliate of Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, at Duke University. She has directed numerous initiatives at Duke and elsewhere, including the first humanities laboratory at Duke--the "Haiti Humanities Lab"--and the first combined neuroscience and humanities study abroad program, Duke Neurohumanities in Paris. Her scholarly work represents a broad field of synergies, including books on the representation of trauma after the French Revolution, and on political proclamations by former slaves in the Haitian Revolution. Since the the 2010 earthquake in Haiti she has been working with an interdisciplinary team to research post-traumatic stress in Haiti; that project is the basis of a volume the team is writing on Trauma and Global Mental Health in Haiti: A Case Study. She is also writing a book on neuroscience and literary representation, for which her classes on "Flaubert's Brain: Neurohumanities" and "The Mimetic Brain" serve as inspiration. She has co-authored an article on mirror neurons and biomimesis with neuropsychiatrist Marco Iacoboni, and co-directs the Duke Bass Connections "Brain & Society" initiative with Scott Huettel.
