'Out here a man settles his own problems': fathers, identity, and learning from John Wayne

This lecture is about sons and fathers. Or, better, it is a lecture about father-ing: father as verb, father as something-that-happens; father as continuous event.

Prof. Jonathan Wyatt's lecture will work between stories of watching John Wayne with his father, witnessing a stand-up performance, Like Father Like Son, by Scottish comic, Scott Gibson, and working with his counselling client, Karl, about his father-son relationships. Prof. Wyatt will place all this in the context of ‘creative-relational inquiry’ as an approach to qualitative research.

Following the lecture there will be a short Q&A with Prof. Wyatt

Doors open at 6.15pm
