Luigi Einaudi Graduate Fellowships

2018-2019

To understand this process, his dissertation examines the development of “new humanism” in medicine, particularly psychiatry and anthropology from the 1930s through the 1960s. His research will address broader questions about politics, culture, and philosophy: How do these debates in medicine and anthropology both affect and intervene in problems concerning politics and decolonization?
