‘Asylums, Pathologies and the Themes of Madness’: Pictures

Posted by Matt Foley on February 13, 2016 in Blog, McGrath Symposium, News tagged with , , , ,

We’re delighted to reproduce, here, some images from the recent symposium at University of Stirling, ‘Asylums, Pathologies and the Themes of Madness: Patrick McGrath and his Gothic Contemporaries’. Many thanks to all of the delegates who attended and, in this instance in particular, to Tanja Jurkovic for her professional photography. Some of the papers from the day were recorded and these will be re-produced in a later post! The conference was generously supported by both The International Gothic Association and The Wellcome Trust.
