Psychiatric patients and treatments on screen is an International conference organized by Nausica Zaballos (EHESS Paris), Jean-François Coffin (Paris V Descartes, Centre Alexandre Koyré), Alessandro Manna (IRIS).

The aim of the conference is to provide the opportunity for scholars from different fields of research to study how the cinematic representation of psychiatric patients and treatments evolved over the last half of the twentieth century. A special emphasis will be put on tracing back the emergence of new types of subjectivity and intimate narratives that advocate for the defense of specific therapeutic practices and that illustrate the appropriation of cinematographic tools by militant groups and activists.

The full programme is available here.
