      From oneliness to the loneliness pill: The history of a modern epidemic

      Merchant Adventurers’ Arts Discovery Lecture Loneliness is talked about as a “mental health crisis” in the 21st century, but its history has been neglected. This lecture explores the meanings of loneliness from the 18th century to the present. It considers the social and well as the individual meanings of loneliness, and the importance of the body as well as the mind in framing this modern epidemic.  Fay Bound Alberti Dr Fay Bound Alberti is Reader in History and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow at the University of York. Her new book: A Biography of Loneliness: The History of an Emotion (Oxford University Press) will be launched at the event.
