Self Labelling and Identity (Video)

As continuing part of David Reville’s foresaid course “Mad People’s History,” this one is about “mad people’s” self definitions , -understandings and -descriptions. “We call mad people lots of names. Most of them are not meant to be complimentary. But what do mad people call themselves? Do they accept labels that others stick on them? Do they apply their own labels? Why might one person choose a different label than another?” (Reville)

Here you can watch the short documentary in which twelve Toronto activists discuss how they identify themselves:  Self Labelling and Identity
