, substantiating, modifying, and expanding its intellectual terrain. Drawing on a South Asian metaphor, we would suggest that biopolitics has many ‘avatars’, each useful in its many ways. In this short piece, we are less interested in chronicling its varied treatments but rather make the observation that the many descriptions of biopolitics in South Asia remain largely western and Eurocentric – in their historicity, genealogy, application, and analyses. What has emerged for us is not only a recognition of the importance of the nexus of

As the contributions to this collection begin to suggest, histories of HIV/AIDS have been distorted by this account in significant ways. In some quarters, and particularly where public health anxieties homed in on other groups such as sex workers or injecting drug users, the epidemic could prompt recognition of expertise among a wider

opened its front doors. After the war, Frantz Fanon worked there as an intern, while the communist psychiatrist Lucien Bonnafé, who later campaigned for recognition of the 40,000 French mental health patients who died (mostly of starvation) during the Occupation, also passed through. 51 When Oury arrived in 1947, Saint Alban was known as a centre of psychiatric reform with politically (far-)left-wing inflections. Institutional psychotherapy, the reform movement that originated there, had a similar political flavour. Tosquelles

Mauco had gained a degree of recognition in the 1930s for his doctoral thesis on immigration, which was informed by a racist, Lamarcko-Jungian understanding of the collective unconscious and acquired group characteristics. His thesis ranked different races and nationalities according to their perceived assimilability to French society, and was welcomed across the political

While the vocabulary of ‘obstetric violence’ has been critical to the recognition and articulation of multiple modalities of birth violence and their roots in

countries on the continent, predominantly Zimbabwe and Malawi, which helps the young migrant women escape the widely profiled medial xenophobia and its effects on undocumented migrants. Medical xenophobia manifests as unfriendliness of service providers, insensitivity and inferior care, insults, delays and denial of treatment, and non-recognition of foreign identity cards (Pollock et al., 2012 ; Zihindula et al., 2015 ). Medical xenophobia on the one hand unravels the subliminal institutionalisation of reproductive violence in the context of transnational care, and at
