The re-configuration of mental
health into a global object of
care
by Drte
Bemme
Global Mental Health Lecture
(GMH) has emerged
as a novel
field of knowledge and practice
that seeks to address mental disorders on a global scale. This talk argues that an
analysis of GMH informed by an anthropology of knowledge may open up
engagements beyond a cultural or local framework. Furthermore, close empirical
attention to the shifting conceptual architecture of GMH may yield surprising insights.
The talk will explore two such shifts in the problematization of mental health: 1) From
the search for an underlying nature of mental illnesses to the procedural validation of
evidence, and 2) To a new emphasis on active ingredients in complex interventions
that allow for the disaggregation and re-assemblage of mental health knowledge across
difference and contexts.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------About the Speaker:
Drte Bemme is a PhD candidate at McGill University. Her research involves multi-sited
fieldwork within the institutional assemblage of Global Mental Health, investigating how
GMH re-configures the knowledges and practices that define what a mental health
problem is and how it can be operationalized in practice.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
