Situating and Interpreting States of Mind 1700 - 2000: An Interdisciplinary Conference 14 - 16 June 2012

Northumbria University's 'States of Mind' research group invites abstracts for this cross-period and interdisciplinary conference by 31 January 2012Abstracts of 300 words for 20-minute papers should be submitted to the conference organisers:  
anita.oconnell@northumbria.ac.uk or leigh.wetherall-dickson@northumbria.ac.uk.

The conference seeks to situate and interpret states of mind from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first, questioning how the space, place and historical context in which mental states are experienced shaped the narratives produced by individuals. Interweaving perspectives from across such disciplines as literature, history, philosophy, art history, creative writing, psychology and sociology, the conference will explore accounts of states of mind including mental illness, dreams, sleep-walking, imaginative states and self-awareness. The conference seeks to assess how these varying states of consciousness are expressed and how such narratives are influenced by historical change, continuity or the reconfiguration of these forms of expression. 

For more information on the conference, including a list of key themes, see here.
