Laura González’s (Athenaeum Research Fellow, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) work falls between medical humanities, psychoanalysis, performance and Eastern thought, and investigates knowledge production and the body of the hysteric. She has published books on madness, seduction, intersemiotic translation and performance and is currently writing one on hysteria using a folding method with her collaborator Eleanor Bowen. She is also translating Freud’s case histories into intimate works and exploring the dramaturgical potential of a breath practice.
