Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Migrants in Translation is an ethnographic reflection on foreign migration, mental health, and cultural translation in Italy. Its larger context is Europe and the rapid shifts in cultural and political identities that are negotiated between cultural affinity and a multicultural, multiracial Europe. The issue of migration and cultural difference figures as central in the process of forming diverse yet unified European identities. In this context, legal and illegal foreigners - mostly from Eastern Europe and Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa - are often portrayed as a threat to national and supranational identities, security, cultural foundations, and religious values. This book addresses the legal, therapeutic, and moral techniques of recognition and cultural translation that emerge in response to these social uncertainties. In particular, Migrants in Translation focuses on Italian ethno-psychiatry as an emerging technique that provides culturally appropriate therapeutic services exclusively to migrants, political refugees, and victims of torture and trafficking.Cristiana Giordano argues that ethno-psychiatry s focus on cultural identifications as therapeutic - inasmuch as it complies with current political desires for diversity and multiculturalism - also provides a radical critique of psychiatric, legal, and moral categories of inclusion, and allows for a rethinking of the politics of recognition.

Synopsis : Migrants in Translation is an ethnographic reflection on foreign migration, mental health, and cultural translation in Italy. Its larger context is Europe and the rapid shifts in cultural and political identities that are negotiated between cultural affinity and a multicultural, multiracial Europe. The issue of migration and cultural difference figures as central in the process of forming diverse yet unified European identities. In this context, legal and illegal foreigners mostly from Eastern Europe and Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa are often portrayed as a threat to national and supranational identities, security, cultural foundations, and religious values.

This book addresses the legal, therapeutic, and moral techniques of recognition and cultural translation that emerge in response to these social uncertainties. In particular, Migrants in Translation focuses on Italian ethno-psychiatry as an emerging technique that provides culturally appropriate therapeutic services exclusively to migrants, political refugees, and victims of torture and trafficking. Cristiana Giordano argues that ethno-psychiatry’s focus on cultural identifications as therapeutic inasmuch as it complies with current political desires for diversity and multiculturalism also provides a radical critique of psychiatric, legal, and moral categories of inclusion, and allows for a rethinking of the politics of recognition.

From the Inside Flap:

"A fresh look at ethno-psychiatry, human trafficking and the politics of recognition in contemporary Italy.  Informed by philosophy, Italian history and critical psychiatry, Giordano’s ethnographically-grounded and nuanced analysis goes to the heart of the contradictory relations between psychiatrists, Catholic nuns, police and women migrants, and between the production of exclusion and the dream of practical utopias." Anne M. Lovell, National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM), Paris

"With great sensitivity and theoretical acuity, Giordano lays bare the challenges of cultural mediation and the political tangles at the heart of mental health work with refugees and asylum seekers. This is an important work for advancing cultural psychiatry and responding to the needs of marginalized groups." Laurence Kirmayer, M.D., McGill University
