‘Shared experiences and meanings’
Carol Acton
Jane Potter

, DC. While medical histories have traditionally focused on the factual and concrete, our analyses of the accounts discussed here emphasise the interdependence of experience and emotion, and it is in exploring this interdependence that we find reflected specific commonalities. Although we separate the wars under discussion into their own chapters, in bringing them together collectively, similarities, more than differences, become increasingly visible. Looking at the experiences of trauma and the attendant methods of coping through which the medical personnel

interconnected. Fourth, responsibilities are important. Finally, an ethic of care requires a rejection of abstract moral rules. In discussing the concept of interconnection, Herring states that ‘emphasising interdependence and mutuality means that the division between carer and cared for dissolves’ (2013: 166). This suggests that within this understanding of the ethic of care it is appropriate to view those in a caring relationship as one unit. Herring refers to ‘give and take’ in the carer and cared for relationship and highlights the importance of seeing decisions in the

Associating animals with urban success and failure, 1880–1900

slaughterhouses and the live cattle market would bring improvement. The proliferation of bye-laws to control animals, even when the Corporation failed to enforce them, created the potential for a powerful municipal administration in the future. 8 Yet the resistance to these changes reflected not only cleaving to tradition but also an idea of the modern city as a place of economic opportunity and freedom. Fin-de-siècle Dublin was certainly an ‘anthrozootic city’, a ‘city made by the close interaction and interdependence of humans and animals’. 9 People also used animals to

contained a number of vicious circles made worse by the tendency to attribute all that went on in the hostel to the warden’s personality. Overall, then, Sinclair’s research revealed the dependence of probation hostels on the warden and matron, the almost parental qualities required of these members of staff and the interdependence of staff and residents. The ‘quasifamily institution’ was very variable and its success depended on relationships. Their tensions, crises and moods placed a strain on the staff, and this was in contrast to larger, more bureaucratic, institutions

From colonial to cross-cultural psychiatry in Nigeria

its contributions to decentring historical narratives and in its emphasis on blurring conventional boundaries between peoples and places to focus on shared characteristics and experiences, mutual interdependence and relationships between the local, global and ‘glocal’ (Hopkins, 2002 ; Manning, 2003 ; Mazlish and Buultjens, 1993 ). I contend that efforts to develop histories of global mental health, and of global health more generally, should actively interrogate the relationship between these layered perspectives and, in so doing, integrate the history of global

Deaf people as objects of research, reform, and eugenics, 1900–1940

mental or social hygiene, childhood studies, or mental testing. In their verdict about various groups of ‘defectives’, eugenicists drew heavily from psychology, anthropology, medicine, and other disciplines that established physical, intellectual, gender, or moral norms. Placing the Clarke School and its research in a larger framework of social reform and scientific developments, this chapter offers a history of eugenics, disability, and the interdependence between promises of passing as non-disabled on the one hand, and the exclusion of deaf people’s perspectives on

heal the mind or to find out something about the interdependence of the physical and the moral. The kind of subject proffered by the human sciences was marked by an authoritarian relation between experts and the human beings whom they viewed as objects of research, who were at once potentially dangerous and in need of care. This combination of anxiety and care enabled the emergence of two approaches to the problem of control: welfare and the human sciences. And this modern subject, conceived on the basis of mistrust, accordingly reappears as an object of research and

The origins and endurance of club regulation
Duncan Wilson

professional authority involves mediating jurisdictional claims between different professions. In following Abbott, we see that the history of club regulation hinges on the interdependence of professions. We cannot fully The origins and endurance of club regulation 25 account for the emergence and strength of club regulation without studying the ‘hands-off’ approach that other professionals adopted when they considered medical and scientific practices. This is especially true of those professions and academic fields that later constituted bioethics, such as law

Carry on, as we had hoped to do.” ’61 It is not just absence imposed by censorship then, that is noteworthy in writing published during the war, but what is present in the form of a rhetorical impulse to impose an affirmative narrative of stoicism on the trauma story, particularly one which reassures both writer and reader that the horrific circumstances being witnessed are politically and morally necessary. Leslie Buswell’s 1917 memoir characteristically attests to the interdependence of potential breakdown with determined resilience: ‘it has been good to be here in
