Psychiatry and addictions in Europe in the 20th century

On 26-27 January 2023, the University of Strasbourg is organising an international colloquium entitled “Psychiatry and addictions in Europe in the 20th century”. The goal of this colloquium is to explore psychiatry’s contribution to the troubled and non-linear history of the medicalization of addictions in Europe throughout the 20th century. This question should be explored through the lens of medical concepts, institutions of care and cure, as well as patients’ experiences. At the same time, the aim is to explore how psychiatric archives may renew the social history of drugs.

The call for papers is open until 12 September, 2022.
