The ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions and The Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender seek expressions of interest for twenty minutes papers at a workshop on the theme of emotions and mental health. Doctors of madness, insanity, and now mental health have long used the experience and expression of emotion as a gauge to psychological robustness. Our embodied experience of emotion is often critical to our own perception of wellbeing. Madness and mental illness are also emotive topics, being mobilised to encourage support and service provision, or to exclude those whose behaviour situates them beyond the ‘norm’. This symposium wishes to explore the relationship between emotion and mental health from an array of perspectives.

The call is open to all disciplines and those working on any time and place. Postgraduates and ECRs are especially welcome. Please send expressions of interest that include a title, abstract and brief bio to Katie Barclay at katie.barclay@adelaide.edu.au by 30 July 2019. The Call for Papers is now closed.
