In the framework of the “ReThinking Identities” exhibition, the Museum of Cycladic Art organizes an online talk titled “Emotional conflicts and bodily protests” by Dr. Chryssanthi Papadopoulou.
The online talk will take place on the 30th of March 2023 from 5 pm to 5:40 pm and it will be held in English via zoom.
This talk, organized in the framework of the European Union Project ReInHerit, will present classical Greek, female somatoform disorders, as these are described in the Hippocratic texts, vis-a-vis hysteria in fin de siècle Vienna and Paris. It examines the sociocultural contexts that gave rise to these female maladies, as well as to their medical (mis)diagnoses and proposed treatments. It demonstrates the doctors’ limited understanding of the various, dissimilar desiderata of their patients, and by extension of the numerous, unalike causes of these disorders. It finally shows how several women sufferers instinctively opted for finding ways of curing themselves.
