Teaching and Research Interests
Vivan convenes the IATL undergraduate module 'Navigating Psychopathology'. The module, open to undergraduates from any discipline, combines lectures and seminars with research and assessment on topics chosen by the students themselves. Guest lecturers provide additional expert input on a wide range of subjects, including neuroscience, psychiatry and literature.
Vivan's background is in philosophy (with a focus on philosophy of psychology), but he has research interests in the philosophy and history of psychiatry, and the medical humanities more generally.
