Nicolas Henckes in Genèses

In a recent number of the French journal of social history, Genèses, Nicolas Henckes publishes an article on the psychiatric hospital reform during the 20th century in France.

The abstract: Borrowing the view of institutions developed by symbolic interactionism and the adopting the point of view of reform process trajectories, this article proposes a framework for analysing psychiatric hospital reform during the 20th century. It objects to the idea that the reform was linked to an institutional crisis and emphasises, on the contrary, the work required to create the conditions under which a certain number of problems can be raised and discussed by the actors at the various moments in history.
