Staff and graduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities are invited to attend this one day forum.

The event will focus on mental illness and aims to explore the topic from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The discussions will explore the development of the concept of madness, representations of mental illness in antiquity, the role of repressed instincts and desires in causing or constituting mental illness and the connection between mental illness and artistic creativity.  

Please feel free to join us for the whole day, or to simply join the session you are most interested in.
