Abstract

Further exploring the themes of diagnosis and treatment highlighted in the exhibition, this talk will sweep through the history of melancholia from its early links with humoral imbalance to the representation of misery in the character of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and beyond.

Delivered by members of the Fashionable Diseases research project team at Northumbria University, this talk promises to be fast-paced and fascinating.
