    [anthro]metronom - witnessing psy realms


    [anthro]metronom publishes essays on psychological anthropology accessible to everyone. It is designed as a platform where students, scholars, and activists are invited to submit essays related to current or historical discussions at the intersections of anthropology, psychology, and psychiatry in a critical or creative way. 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, as well as suffering. Formerly organised by graduate students at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and supervised by Thomas Stodulka, [anthro]metronom has developed into a growing international team of young scholars in the field of psychological anthropology and is currently cooperating with the European Network for Psychological Anthropology (ENPA), where [anthro]metronom holds a position of Junior Faculty Representative.
