Online Summer Book Discussion Group for "Storming Bedlam: Madness, Utopia, and Revolt"

Join us virtually for a free, special summer discussion series about the book "Storming Bedlam: Madness, Utopia, and Revolt" by Sasha Warren. This time-limited series is being hosted by the Minnesota branch of ISPS-US on the occasion of this recent publication by a Minnesota author. The text explores global socio-cultural contexts in which psychiatric movements and counter-movements have played out and how those movements have led us to the ongoing questions regarding effective approaches to extreme states with which society still grapples. The event is free and everyone is welcome to participate, for either some or all of the sessions.⁠

This is 9-session series will be held virtually on the following dates from 8pm-9:30pm Eastern (7pm-8:30pm Central, 6pm-7:30pm Mountain, 5-6:30pm Pacific):⁠

June 6 (covering pp. ix-21)⁠
June 13 (covering pp. 22-52)⁠
June 20 (covering pp. 53-82)⁠
