The Subjectivity of the Body in Mental Health: An Anthropological Workshop

Publication date:

Subjectivity and Mental Health

In recent years there has been a lot of debate about subjectivities and mental health. The forming of the self through techniques has subsequently given new angles on research of the formation of selves through bodily and mental practices. Some of those studies, however, tend towards a hidden essentialism – body and mind as the instruments that are used to act upon an assumed self. On the other side of the spectrum, studies of subjectivity assume that the subject is ephemeral, immaterial, a thing of the law, language or the mind alone. If we do not challenge this assumption, we might easily fall into the trap Foucault cautioned against when he called the soul a prison of the body.

Risk, Embodiment and Health Technologies

A One day workshop hosted by Biosocialities, Health and Citizenship RRG and the SMS network

The Biosocialities, Health and Citizenship reading and research group utilizes theoretical and empirically informed discussions of ‘biosociality’ (Rabinow 1996, Rose and Novas 2001, Gibbon and Novas 2008, Nugyen 2007, Petryna 2002 ) as a starting point for critical engagement with questions around the global expansion of a range of medical technologies and questions of citizenship. We explore how, and to what extent, different technologies and forms of medical intervention become grafted onto, or informed by, articulations of citizenship and what the scope (and limits) are of these theoretical orientations for understandings the relationship between medical technology and identity in a variety of diverse cultural contexts.
