Dr Elizabeth Sercombe is a writer and researcher from the UK.
“My writing explores the dynamics and texture of human transformation in everyday life. My recent book Strange Adventures considers women’s inner transformation at different life stages in the works of French writer Pierrette Fleutiaux, and is informed by Jungian psychology and Beauvoirian philosophy. Through Fleutiaux’s work I challenge prevailing narratives of what it means to be human, and to be a woman. At Konstepidemin I am researching and writing a novel which will bring aspects of my research to life though the lens of botany and plant science, exploring themes of inner and outer wildness and beauty, the adventure of transformation, and of ‘coming home’.”
Elizabeth is a researcher, writer and facilitator. Her work crosses the boundaries of academic, commercial and creative life to explore what it means to be human, and to provoke curiosity and delight in the adventure of becoming ourselves.
This is Elizabeth’s third stay at Konstepidmin. Find out more about her stay and work in progress at Elizabeth’s personal blog for the residency at www.twomonthsingothenburg.wordpress.com
