New! Special Section, guest-edited by Dr Orkideh Behrouzan, is published in Medicine, Anthropology, Theory.

Dr Orkideh Behrouzan has guest edited a special section in the new issue of Medicine, Anthropology, Theory. The section titled “Beyond Trauma: Notes on Mental Health in the Middle East” opens a timely debate on psychological welling in the region. In the words of the editors of the journal:

“The Special Section ‘Beyond “Trauma”, guest edited by Dr Orkideh Behrouzan who organized the September 2014 workshop by the same name in London, undertakes an impressive effort to reframe multiple objects, including psychiatric diagnosis, the Middle East as a region, and interdisciplinarity. With excellent editorial introductions written by both Behrouzan and Michael Fischer, and the text of the keynote lecture given by Jennifer Leaning, we keep our comments brief here and invite our readers to explore the three original articles by Behrouzan, Omar Dewachi, and Zuzanna Olszewska, as well as two Think Pieces, one by Veena Das and another by Hanna Kienzler and Zeina Amro, on a topic that seems particularly relevant given current events in Syria and the Middle Eastern region today.”
