Reframed – Conversations about Heritage and Inclusion
Encountering records of mental illness
Our new monthly series of digital events reveals our collections in new ways – reframing our heritage to address issues of equality, diversity and inclusion. Featuring the College’s Heritage team, and some special guests.
We're delighted to be joined by Dr Cheryl McGeachan, historical and cultural geographer, for the sixth instalment of our Reframed series. We’ll talk to Cheryl about records of mental illness found in our archive collections, sometimes unexpectedly, and discuss how we respond to these records and interpret them.
The event is free to attend but please book in advance and we’ll send you details of how to join in with the conversation which will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. The event will start at 6pm.
Dr Cheryl McGeachan is Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Glasgow. Her research interests are particularly focused on researching the lived experiences of mental ill-health in historical and contemporary contexts. She is currently Associate Director of the International Green Academy, and most recently collaborated with the College on a Carnegie Trust-funded research project on the practice of 19th century Scottish police surgeons.
