Call for Papers: “Theatre, Performance, Madness, and Psychiatry”

Below you will find a call for papers for an international conference on the subject of Theatre, Performance, Madness, and Psychiatry. This interdisciplinary conference is part of an AHRC funded project to investigate the history of performance in, and about, psychiatric asylums and hospitals since the 19th century. The conference will take place on 17th an 18th of September 2012 at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and we welcome abstracts from across all disciplines. It is anticipated that selected papers from the conference will be included in the publication that is being produced as part of the grant.
