Psychopathological fringes: Historical and social science perspectives on category work in psychiatry

Conférence organisée par Nicolas Henckes (Cermes3), Volker Hess (Charité Berlin), Emmanuel Delille (Charité Berlin), Marie Reinholdt (Cermes3), Stefan Reinsch (Cermes3) et Lara Rzesnitzek (Charité Berlin)

Les 13 et 14 février 2015

This workshop will investigate the multifaceted practices developed by clinicians, epidemiologists, biologists, administrators and patients to negotiate and objectify the boundaries of diagnostic categories. In contrast with constructionist perspectives, our goal is not to show the less than solid nature of core psychiatric categories, but rather to explore the already internally contested and marginal categories devised to target conditions situated at the borders of psychopathology.
