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

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


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.
