Hi! I am a TA at The University of Akron and we have an upcoming conference on Hysteria. I would love to use your picture "Hysteria" for the cover of our program. Of course, your name and url plus anything else you wanted would be printed on the program. I hope to speak to you soon!

Thank you!

Hi Missy,

Thank you for asking permission. I would like to give my permission, but first I would like to know what the contents and especially the viewpoint and attitude towards the concept of hysteria would be at the conference, whether it would be solely approached from a medical viewpoint, whether it would break taboos or confirm them. If you could provide me a little bit more context and information about this, that would be great. 

Kind regards,

Of course! It might be best if I sent you our call for papers! Our keynote speaker will discuss hysteria in terms of men and women in early 19th-century asylums. Our speakers will do a variety of narrative pieces and literature analyses. We have a lot of female speakers who will discuss the stereotypes of women in hysteria: spiritually, mentally, and physically. We have speakers discussing hysteria in Moby Dick, and Coraline. I will attach our call for papers as well. Please let me know any more information I can give.

SAGES Fourth Annual Interdisciplinary Conference: Hysteria

Event: 04/28/2016 - 04/28/2016 
Abstract: 02/29/2016
Categories: American, 1865-1914, 20th & 21st Century, African-American, Colonial, Revolution & Early National, Transcendentalists, British, 20th & 21st Century, Early Modern & Renaissance, Long 18th Century, Medieval, Romantics, Victorian, Digital Humanities, Gender & Sexuality, Graduate Conference, Interdisciplinary, Aesthetics, Anthropology/Sociology, Classical Studies, Cultural Studies, Environmental Studies, Film, TV, & Media, Food Studies, History, Philosophy, Popular Culture, Women's Studies
Location: The University of Akron, 303 Carroll Street, Akron, OH 44325 
Organization: Society of Akron Graduate English Scholars

The Society of Akron Graduate English Scholars is pleased to announce a call for papers for its upcoming interdisciplinary conference on April 28, 2016. We welcome creative writers and scholars from various disciplines to discuss the theme, “Hysteria.” This free conference is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. We invite scholarship and reflection addressing one or more elements of hysteria and its historical and cultural context.

Hysteria is typically defined as a state of unmanageable emotional excess. Given this definition, the term has been applied to gender dynamics, specifically the hysterical female. From the Greek word hystera meaning uterus, the term hysteria sprang from disturbances associated with female reproduction and seemingly unorthodox sexual desire. The symptoms were nervousness, a tendency to cause trouble, and promiscuity. A modern interpretation of hysteria is now believed to be associated with a form of PTSD. It can also be applied to expressions of riotous emotion present within the fine arts and music. The term is also used in a wider sense; it is used to describe crowds—mass hysteria—and things that are particularly funny—hysterical.
This year we are seeking a variety of interpretations of the term across all academic disciplines in an effort to explore connections between dissimilar fields and cultural spaces.

Possible topics that can be explored but are not restricted to:
The myth of the disabled woman
Gendered presentations of madness
Psychology and hysteria
Literary depictions of doubling, schizophrenia, and other mental illness
Treatment of mental illness in respect to culture and societal class dynamic
Historical treatment of mental illness versus modern treatment
Temperance, chemical dependency, and mental Illness
Miscommunication and madness
Witch hunts and riots
Music and mass cultural influence
Comedic enactments, drama, and film

The above list is simply a loose guideline of suggested topics. Please, feel free to explore your own interpretations of hysteria.

We seek submissions from all disciplines. Submit individual abstracts (no more than 400 words) directly to SAGES by February 29, 2016 via email ( Those abstracts that are selected will be organized into specific panels to be presented at the conference. Expect responses in mid March 2016. All creative writing manuscripts need to be submitted in their entirety. Presentation proposals (no more than 400 words) and creative writing manuscripts are to be submitted directly to SAGES via email ( by February 29, 2016. The conference will be held at The University of Akron in Akron, OH in the university's Student Union Ballroom.
