Cinlerden Genlere: Türkiye'de Modern Devlet ve Ruh Bilimleri

Proje Özeti: 

This project examines the epistemological and conceptual formation and articulations of madness, mental health, and selfhood in the context of creating a modern Turkish nation (1923-1960). Three inter-related themes run through the study: (1) The emergence of new and often contested medical discourses on mental health that engaged with and participated in the construction of healthy secular subjects within the Kemalist nationalist project (2) The processes through which psy-sciences, armed with scientific rationality, came to engage with and appropriate the language and the terrain once occupied by religion (3) The contingent contours of psyscientific discourses, and the different forms they took under the changing socio-historical settings and problem-spaces of republican Turkey.
