Mik Godley “A Different Heartbeat”

Ritually celebrated yet sometimes invisible, momentous and gradual, buoyed by hope and laced with loss – our lives consist of a series of transitions, transformations in our bodies and relationships, our identities and our place(s) in the world. This extended seminar explores questions of time, transition and creativity in three phases of the life-course – old age, adulthood, and early adolescence.

  • “‘I’m a Loser, I’m Not Married, Let’s Just All Look at Me”: Women’s Experiences of Missing the Marital Transition,” Elizabeth Sharp, Associate Professor, Human Development and Family Studies, Texas Tech University, USA.
  • “Roots and Wings – Celebrating Transition in Schools,” Mike White, Research Fellow in Arts & Health and Mary Robson, Associate for Arts in Health and Education, Centre for Medical Humanities, Durham University.
