Mental illness has long been of interest to researchers in the humanities, including philosophy, linguistics, sociology, history and politics. In a domain where psychologists and psychiatrists have focused on identifying interventions and developing explanatory models, scholars in the humanities have preferred to explore broad conceptual and cultural questions. For instance:

- Where do notions like “mental health” and “mental illness” come from? What can we learn from their history?
- How do specific diagnostic categories emerge?
- How does psychiatric language shape the way we think about ourselves and each other?
- How should we understand the relationship between mental illness and personal responsibility?
- How does stigma about mental illness function?
- How can we distinguish illness and disorder from other kinds of difference?

The aim of this conference is to demonstrate that a dialogue between two of these disciplines – philosophy and linguistics – can help shed light on these important issues.

Keynote speakers:
- Dr. Nelya Koteyko
- Prof. Tim Thornton
