This panel discussion features scholars and activists from the MSc Mad Studies course at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Now in its third year, this innovative postgraduate course is the first of its kind internationally. The panelists will introduce some of their learning from the course and will discuss its role in fuelling social change and promoting solidarity among psychiatric survivors. Questions to be explored by the panel are: What is mad studies? What are its strengths and weaknesses? How does it relate to activism? How does Mad Studies approach experiences of psychosis? How does Mad Studies contribute to solidarity in respect to lived/living experiences of psychosis? The panel will involve participants in discussion of these questions in order to foster enquiry and dialogue about Mad Studies.
