Dr Stephen Soanes : Rest and Restitution: Convalescence and the Public Mental Hospital in England, 1919-39.

Stephestephen_soanes1.jpgn's doctoral research has explored the changing place of convalescence in the public mental hospital system and wider community. It explores the contestation of convalescence as a category that defined not only the personal health of the individual patient but also their identity and belonging as patients and citizens. The liminal position of the convalescent set these patients apart. Neither sick enough to warrant continued hospitalization nor suffciently well to fully participate in occupational or domestic life the convalescent challenged dualistic conceptions of psychiatric treatment that distinguish between opposed categories of sickness/ health. This research questions who ultimately held definitional power over psychiatric improvement. Supervisors: Professor Hilary Marland and Dr Mathew Thomson
