Madness: Ideas about Insanity

Thursday 25 January 2018, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

Enrol and pay online 

Throughout history and across cultures the ‘mad’ have been separated from the ‘normal’, and today there is a huge rise in the diagnosis of mental illness/disorders globally. But there have been, and are, many different ideas about madness. To examine the core question ‘what is madness?’ ideas from psychiatry, social-history, sociology, psychology, and anthropology are applied to the autobiographical stories of those considered mad (who reveal their own ideas) in the past and in the present.
