Nicola Redhouse and Lee Kofman in conversation: on body and mind and how each shapes how we live

In Unlike the Heart: a memoir of brain and mind Nicola Redhouse comes to understand a period of terrible postnatal anxiety in terms of both body and mind: genetics, biology, but also the inheritance of her relationships. In Imperfect, Lee Kofman uses her own story of bodily scars to investigate and understand the ways that our bodies shape who we become. Come along to an in-conversation with Kofman and Redhouse, where together they discuss what they have come to know and understand about how mental experience, our sense of ourselves, bodily appearance and the way our bodies feel all contribute to the people we become and the lives we live.
