Confined Spaces: Considering Performance, Madness, and Psychiatry

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 10:54am
Corpus Christ College, University of Cambridge

Madness and theatre are not unfamiliar bedfellows. Their twinned histories are in evidence since the earliest examples of literature. Eschewing the somewhat hazy link between madness and creativity, however, this interdisciplinary conference opens up a critical dialogue between mental ill health and theatre and asks how far performance might be a useful methodology for understanding and articulating alternative mental experiences. We are particularly concerned with the shifts in notions of mental ill health, its treatment, and its spaces from the late nineteenth century onwards and how this psychiatric and human history might speak to a concomitant theatre history.

Signaled in colonial portrayals of a New World rife with lush resources and intense mortal dangers to contemporary discourses surrounding public healthcare and its monetary costs/benefits---the country's physical and economic "well being" have long been connected in the public psyche. Recognizing the symbolic possibilities behind this connection, American authors frequently used it to explore public and social issues affecting their nation and its citizenry. This panel seeks projects which explore such connections. Essays may pertain to any American literary period or genre. In addition, all cross-disciplinary and/or hemispheric approaches will be considered. Possible topics may include but are not limited to:
