Professor Sonu Shamdasani works on the history of psychiatry, psychology and the human sciences, in the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century.
Formation of Modern Psychological Disciplines
My research follows two intersecting vertices: the reconstruction of the formation of modern psychological disciplines and therapeutics from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, and a reconstruction of the formation of work of Jung, based on primary archival materials. In addition, I have been overseeing a project to edit Jung’s unpublished manuscripts (www.philemonfoundation.org).
From 1993 to 2011, I was at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, which became the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, where I was Acting Director from 2009-10. After the closure of the Centre, I moved to the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, where I established the Centre for the History of Psychological Disciplines, and teach on the taught PhD programme on Psychoanalytic Studies in the Psychoanalysis Unit.
