‘CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON LEARNING FROM MAD KNOWLEDGE’

 

SCHOOL OF APPLIED SOCIAL STUDIES AND SCHOOL OF NURSING AND MIDWIFERY

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CORK, IRELAND

IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE CRITICAL VOICES NETWORK IRELAND

Mad knowledge has been historically invalidated by academic and professional disciplines. Despite the rhetoric of ‘social inclusion’ and ‘co-production’, service users/survivors/Mad people continue to be viewed as non-credible knowers in relation to their own experiences. This is a form of injustice that renders them powerless within the systems that are meant to support them. This year’s conference provides opportunities to consider Mad knowledge and the challenges involved in learning with and from Madness and distress.  This conference will consider:

  • The diversity of Mad knowledge
  • The processes that marginalise Mad knowledge
  • Issues of credibility and representation
  • What it means to learn from Mad knowledge
  • The implications of this learning for education and practice systems
  • How we create environments to honour, and nurture Mad knowledge
