Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of sociology and science studies Andrew Scull takes a wide-ranging look at our encounters with madness across the centuries. Scull looks at the political, social, literary, cultural, artistic and scientific dimensions of madness and explores our responses to it. Scull is distinguished professor of sociology and science studies at the University of California and author or editor of more than 20 books, many of them on the history of psychiatry in Britain and the United States.
