Cerys’s PhD investigates how mood disorders became a diagnostic category by looking at medical cases and literature from 1830 to 1930. Her pen and ink image engages with an article published in The Lancet in 1841 and aims to portray the mechanical treatment of patients in the early nineteenth century.
