Australian Army commander John Cantwell's memoir Exit Wounds shines a light on post-traumatic stress, which he suffered, having served with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan. Margaret Evison's son, Lieutenant Mark Evison, died fighting in Afghanistan.
In this very special event Cantwell and Evison share their personal experiences of the human cost of war that can leave a body and mind in crisis. Are we making a difference, and at what cost?
As part of the Melbourne Writers Festival, Deakin's Faculty of Arts and Education is proud to host Writers at Deakin.
Major John Cantwell
Professor Ann Mc Culloch (Chair)
She is the director and writer of a documentary series on Hope and many articles on his life and work. Ann McCulloch's book on the works of Patrick White and Nietzsche heralded her original interest in tragedy and theory. She has written and produced twelve theatrical productions including three plays The Odyssey Enflamed, The Girl with Green Eyes, and Let Gypsies Lie.
Ann McCulloch is Executive Editor of the on-line journal Double Dialogues (see doubledialogues.com) and co-convener of associated international conferences. Her interest in 'The body and Mind in Crisis' has not only been represented in her articles on depression, tragic theory, War and Literature and Climate change but also represented in units devised for Deakin university students : 'Literature of Sadness: The Mind & Body in Crisis' and 'War, Trauma and Terror Narratives of Extremity'.
