New perspectives in transcultural and postcolonial psychiatry

Within the framework of two ERC Starting Grants (‘Decolonizing Madness’, PI Ana Antic, University of Copenhagen, and ‘Governing Madness’, PI Romain Tiquet, CNRS, Marseille), a two-day conference will be organized at the Centre Marc Bloch (Berlin) on November 4 and 5, 2021, with a focus on new perspectives in the history and anthropology of transcultural and postcolonial psychiatry. This international conference aims to explore a variety of new theoretical and methodological approaches, topics and voices in the global development of transcultural psychiatry in the second half of the twentieth century. The organisers invite proposals from scholars in history, anthropology, psychology, psychotherapy and clinical sciences, who will reflect on the development of networks, encounters and practices of knowledge production and sharing in transcultural psychiatry, and on the complex interrelationships between psychiatry and decolonisation in a global context.
