The IHR is very pleased to extend this invitation to a discussion with Sir Jonathan Bate, Professor of English and Provost of Worcester College, University of Oxford on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
Over 50,000 online learners signed up for the course Literature and Mental Health: Reading for Wellbeing on FutureLearn, the UK’s global MOOC platform. Each week the course explored a different topic – stress, grief, PTSD, depression, dementia – using an array of classic literary texts to educate, to explain and to console. The course message board became a support community. Subsequent research revealed some extraordinary outcomes. Join us for a discussion with Sir Jonathan Bate on the relationship between literature, mental health and the online learning environment.
