Hearing voices is a fundamental human experience that is sometimes pathologized, sometimes sought after, and often terrifying. It has existed throughout history; current estimates suggest 4-10% of the population may at times hear voices. These experiences have been understood in dramatically different ways, and our readings will range widely across social, cognitive, biological, ethnographic, spiritual, and political perspectives. Several sessions will be co-taught (via video) with Jacqui Dillon, Chair of the Hearing Voices Network, England. Each student will complete a semester-long project, involving data analysis or literature review or practicum work in a community organization.
