Reading Lunch: Subjects in the history of mental health
This week sees us turn our focus to the role of ‘subjects’ and subjectivity in the history of medicine, with a particular focus on mental health. How should we understand the psychological patient, loaded categories such as ‘madness’, and the binaries of the psycho-therapeutic encounter? What is the intersection between the historian of medical science and the actors of the past?
A light lunch will be provided.
