schema:description"The essays in this volume reflect on the nature of subjectivity in the diverse places where anthropologists work at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Contributors explore everyday modes of social and psychological experience, the constitution of the subject, and forms of subjection that shape the lives of violent Basque youth, visionary Indonesian artists, bureaucrats and members of nongovernmental HIV/AIDS programs in China and Zaire, psychiatrists and the mentally ill in Morocco and Ireland, and persons who have suffered trauma or been displaced by violence in the Middle East and in South and Southeast Asia. The contributors' analyses place the political at the heart of the psychological and the psychological at the heart of the political as the starting point for rethinking subjectivity."@en
