A member of our society has asked me to distribute a call for papers with regard to a book he is editing.
Troubled Persons Industries: The Expansion of Psychiatric Categories beyond Psychiatry
Call for abstracts and chapters
Martin Harbusch & Alison Fixsen
We are looking for authors, who focus on (non-)psychiatric contexts of everyday life from a (critical) sociological approach. This could be empirical-based reconstructions of the use of psychiatric categories in professional (non-)psychiatric contexts; analysis of social developments, such as trends toward self-diagnosis; the contextual power aspects of the victim role; or the multiplication of “troubled persons” agents and agencies via the internet. We also seeking theoretical chapters, which focus on these or other contexts in a more abstract way and connect to the classical theoretical debate around mental health and illness.
Proposed Dates of this volume:
– Deadline for the edited final Version: October 2020
– Date of Publication: December 2020
Please send your abstracts (max. 300 words; title of the proposed chapter and main arguments/discussion points) up to the 2nd December
