This non-guaranteed special session invites papers addressing how narratives of psychosis, mood disorders, or autism (in any medium, genre, or period) change our understanding of the ethics and phenomenology of reading, viewing, or listening. I welcome disability studies critiques of concepts of madness or autism, histories of medical or psychological narratives, and philosophy of psychology and psychiatry analyses of cognition, affect, volition, or hermeneutics in narratives of madness or autism conceptualized as real experiences of distress, impairment, and different mental structures. Please submit 350-word abstracts and CVs to Jonathan Gagas, Temple University (email@example.com) by March 15, 2014.
