For the first time, the Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry has decided to include the contribution made by personal narratives of madness by including a critical annotated bibliography in its companion website. The resource was edited by Jayasree Kalathil, in collaboration with survivor researchers Jasna Russo, Debra Shulkes and David Crepaz-Keay. The purpose of this collection is to offer a range of stories written by, selected and annotated by people labelled mad. It also contains writings – not always by mad people – that raise ethical and methodological questions about ‘studying’ mad people’s narratives. It does not purport to be representative or balanced, and although these sound like objective terms they have often been used by people in power to criticise or silence voices they would rather not hear.
Preparation for a senior thesis, capstone, or honors project that requires a serious research component. Students will work one-on-one with a Subject Specialist in the Library to prepare the groundwork for an intensive academic project within their major. Students will be instructed in the organization of information and in sophisticated search strategies for finding, evaluating, and using information. A critical annotated bibliography is required, as well as a strategy for acquiring materials needed for the final project. Students must obtain approval from their academic advisor. Permission of the is required.
