On sitting down to read a letter from Freud
Nicholas Royle

to the recipient’ (in the rather niggardly phrasing of the OED : see treat n1, sense I, 4a), might connect, precisely in the element of dreaming, with ‘treat’ as ‘The action or an act of treating, or discussing terms; parley, negotiation; agreement; treaty’ (sense I, 1), with ‘treat’ in the obsolete sense of ‘trace’ (sense II, 9), and finally with the notion of psychoanalytic treatment. The dream treats the dreamer. Writing, it seems to me, as well as any other so-called clinical or therapeutic activity, enables the critical and productive encounter of two of

5.1 There would be little support today, even from the most paternalistic doctor, 1 for the proposition that a sick adult should be compelled to accept whatever treatment his doctor thought best. No one suggests that adults who stay away from dentists out of childlike fear and to the detriment of their dental and general health should be rounded up and marched to the nearest dental surgery for forcible treatment. Few would deny the right of the adult Jehovah’s Witness to refuse a blood transfusion, 2 even if in doing so she forfeits her life. Medical

Medicine in the colonies in the Age of Commerce

of the West Indies, and its complex links with commerce and mercantilism, came to be overlooked by historians as well. Trade and treatment in the Coromandel If it was the Spanish who opened up the New World, it was the Portuguese who developed new areas of maritime trade in the East. They were followed by the Dutch East India Company (Vereinigte Ostindische Compagnie (VOC)), which rapidly demolished Portuguese power in the Indian Ocean and then displaced the Arabs and Italians to gain a complete monopoly over the

Reconceptualising states’ obligations in countering VAWH
Sara De Vido

3 The treatment: re-conceptualising states’ obligations in countering VAWH Starting from the beginning: the nature of state obligations This chapter consists in the treatment, and it attempts to find an answer to the question which obligations states must abide by with regard to VAWH? There is often no univocal response – and hence a treatment – to a disease. However, the current legal instruments underestimate – to the point of not even mentioning women’s rights to health and to reproductive health – the point that focusing on health is a way, in considering

219 9 Complex microcosms: asylums and treatments, 1900–​1950 By 1950, a new kind of leprosy asylum had entered the Western public imagination. No longer a place of horror, the modern leprosy asylum was a key example of the benefits of the work of colonial medicine and religious missions. It was a place of orderliness and cleanliness where sufferers could lead a meaningful existence and receive medical treatment with the prospect of returning to society. However, this public image was contested by a revisionist historiography in the 1990s and early 2000s.1 Here

reports he was to prepare his own report to the Governor and Commander-in-Chief in Madras about the details of the patients, treatments, etc. 4 As we shall see, this centralization was not just a medical or military motivation, it was a process in the growing territorial power of the EEIC in eighteenth-century India. These institutions in India had different trajectories from those developing in contemporary Europe. Arrangements for the care of sick and wounded armies in Europe were different from those of the navy

Mercenaries are fighters who operate under special conditions. Their presence, as shadow combatants, often tends to exacerbate the violence of their enemies. That’s why the analysis focuses on the singularity of the relationship to death and ‘procedures’ concerning the corpses of their fallen comrades. As a fighter identified and engaged in landlocked areas, the mercenary’s corpse is treated according to material constraints pertaining in the 1960s. After violence on their body, and evolution towards the secret war, mercenaries favour the repatriation of the body or its disappearance. These new, painful conditions for comrades and families give birth to a collective memory fostered by commemorations.

, we discuss how patients and their families are enrolled in cancer-related genomic medicine, not just as end-users, but as co-producers of genomic knowledge and technologies. We consider how this, in turn, enacts personal and collective futures where cancer, if not cured, will be held at bay by molecular monitoring and tailored treatments. Throughout we try to shine a light on how patients as service users, research participants, representatives, advocates, campaigners and supporters of fellow patients as well as their carers, families and

Difficulties and challenges for the forensic medical system in Mexico
Isabel Beltrán-Gil, María Alexandra Lopez-Cerquera, Linda Guadalupe Reyes Muñoz, Sandra Ivette Sedano Rios, Nuvia Montserrat Maestro Martínez, and Diana Newberry Franco

As a result of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic, in 2020 forensic institutions in Mexico began using extreme measures in the treatment of bodies of confirmed or suspected cases, due to possible infection. A series of national protocols on how to deal with the virus were announced, yet forensic personnel have struggled to apply these, demonstrating the country’s forensics crisis. This article aims to reflect on two points: (1) the impact that COVID-19 protocols have had on how bodies confirmed as or suspected of being infected with the virus are handled in the forensic medical system; and (2) the particular treatment in cases where the body of the victim is unidentified, and the different effects the pandemic has had in terms of the relationship between the institutional environment and the family members of those who have died as a result of infection, or suspected infection, from COVID-19.
