Stories in the Skin: Empathy, Embodiment and the Novel
Emma Geen's research explores ideas of empathy and the materiality of stories, in particular the novel. The creative component is a speculative fiction novel about a girl who stops speaking. The research component examines the entanglement of empathy, embodiment and the novel using the story of, the 19th century writer, Vernon Lee as a framework.
Empathy, embodiment, novels, speculative fiction.
