Event Summary:

In this taster lecture the students will be encouraged to reflect critically on the notions of the ‘normal’ and the ‘pathological’ through a range of critical questions: what does it mean to be normal? How has the notion of the ‘normal’ arisen?

Full Event Details:

We will explore the key ideas in Michel Foucault’s histories of madness and sexuality, where he traces the new imperative ‘to be normal’ in modernity and more precisely in the emergence of bourgeois morality and the development of scientific reason.

Since the 20th century we have witnessed the rise of critical voices from the fields of the arts, philosophy, social sciences and psychiatry that have come to criticize the imperative to normalcy as part of a systematic disciplining and controlling of the modern subject. The lecture will conclude with the question: ‘how normal is the wish to be normal?’
