Article: Seeing Madness in the Archives, by Ariel Mae Lambe

The article “Seeing Madness in the Archives” by Ariel Mae Lambe could be of interest to h-madness users. The abstract on the publishers website reads: What does it mean for the historian to be silent about mental illness in her life and also to perceive silence about mental illness in the archives? This essay explores the significance of the historian seeing mental illness and ableism in the historical archive, in her family history, and in herself. It examines the significance of mad identity for the historian, her historical subjects, and the discipline of history more broadly. It celebrates breaking the silence ableism inflicts and asserting madness”.
