Service Description

Mad Studies has a rich history of learning, critiquing & including from and the principles of other disciplines which have their roots in civil rights activism and fighting other forms of discrimination. Queer theory has a strong overlap with Mad Studies, not just idealogically but historically. Until recently it was still within psychiatric diagnostically manuals but there are also a much higher prevalence of queer people in psychiatric services today. Artist & activist Dolly Sen has created a lot of work in her art and writing about this subject, very recently releasing a book in March. The book has a preview you can read on Amazon, as well as a kindle book, and if you enjoy the session, maybe you will even be back for more! She will be joining us from approximately 5.30, but as usual it's always great to see everyone and do an introduction/check in before the session. Amazon Free Preview & Kindle book for £2.39: https://www.amazon.co.uk/LGBTQAI-PHOBIA-MENTAL-HEALTH-SYSTEM-ebook/dp/B0CW2VXHG9/ref=sr_1_13 A good option is always to buy the book if you can, from the independent Cuckoo Press here: Dolly also has a book which is in its 4th print edition and only £5 including postage, documenting the life of Lorina Bulwer, a needleworker incarcerated in the 'female lunatic ward' who used her 'feminine craft' in a subversive way: https://redherringpress.bigcartel.com/product/lorina-bulwer-by-dolly-sen-1 Dolly Sen's website: dollysen.com ***** Mad Studies has always been free - if you would like to attend for free, please select 'Pay in Person'. The costs for the site, marketing and Zoom hosting have increased and I will be losing my employed income soon, so I have had to add in a section for voluntary donations if anyone feels so inclined. No pressure though - the group was always supposed to ensure that knowledge is available without a paywall. ***** Please book your FREE place so that we have an idea of numbers to expect and can send you details of the papers being considered and Zoom details. MAD STUDIES EVENTS ARE ON THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH!!! 2024 Dates: 4 Jul 1 Aug 5 Sept 3 Oct 7 Nov 5 Dec
