angry grrrls: mad resistance(s) to the psychiatric industrial complex
inspired by the writings of French poetwriterfeministscholar Monique Wittig’s (utopian feminist separatist-which-does-not-mean-only-women extremely non-linear) Les Guerilleres.
Informed by queer theorists and/or utopian thinkers such as Monique Wittig, Jose Esteban Munoz, Cathy Cohen, David Harvey, Michel Foucault… Mad scholars such as Jijian Voranka, Foucault again :D, can we say Wittig again??, (and all queer theorists because queerness is pathologized? and all the psychologist theorists i’m about to list because you GOTTA be crazy to write that much about being Crazy?? lol) Field Theories of Psychology, three (of my personal favorites) being Bowen Family Systems Theory, authored by Murray Bowen, (as sometimes taken up by Edwin Friedman, Peggy Papp, Carl Rogers), Gestalt Therapy, and Jungian Depth Psychology (as sometimes taken up by Joseph Campbell, James Hillman).
Gloria Anzaldua’s scholarship is not cited/quoted in this version/these installments of Angry Grrrls, but her work on intersectionality and “mestiza consciousness” is a huge inspiration to me. Also haha Lee Edelmen’s work on The Child/The Future isn’t cited in this but is given a very certain nod. In fact..haha I should prolly go cite him.
*Whatever I won’t post that part for awhile because the paper in full is about 24 pages. So I got time.*
