The Global Psyche

A special issue on the politics of psychiatric knowledge and its globalization, edited by Professors Dominique Béhague and Kenneth MacLeish, has just been published in Medical Anthropology Quarterly. The collection brings together a group of scholars working in Japan, Italy, Argentina, Kosovo, with First Nations communities in Canada, and in various settings in which U.S.’s post-9/11 wars have been waged.

Béhague and MacLeish are grateful to the Vanderbilt International Office, the Research Scholars Grant Program of the Office of the Provost, and the Trans-Institutional Partnership Program (TIPs) at Vanderbilt University for funding the Biopsychiatry and Global Psyche conferences that this special issue is based on.
