New blog on the history of colonial psychiatry

A new blog has been recently launched on the history of colonial psychiatry, Colonial Psychiatry Hub. It is written by a  DPhil student from the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Oxford. His research concerns the practice of psychiatry in Church Missionary Society hospitals in Uganda, 1897-1944.

The goal of the blog is described as follow:

1. To bring together resources for the study of colonial psychiatry.

2. To provide a platform to disseminate the results of my PhD research.

Initial posts have included Missionaries in colonial psychiatry literature, The archives of Mengo Hospital or Sleeping sickness and lunacy.

  1. Interesting – thanks for the link!

  1. No trackbacks yet.
