witnessing psy realms
[anthro]metronom publishes essays on psychological anthropology accessible to everyone. It is designed as a platform where students, sch]olars, and activists are invited to submit essays related to current or historical discussions at the intersections of anthropology, psychology, and psychiatry. The blog discusses a wide range of topics: from suffering and mental health to therapies and healing, emotions and affects; from critical reflections on psychiatric practices to discussions of the concepts of self, personhood, and culture, or the coming of age of children and adolescents. The blog maintains a focus on cultural, structural and political dimensions as they influence human experience, well-being, and suffering. The blog is organised by graduate students at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and supervised by Thomas Stodulka.
