Trained in medicine, philosophy, and history of medicine, Joelle M. Abi-Rached works at the intersections of global health, history of medicine, psychiatry, and the politics of life. At Radcliffe, she will explore what it means to be a “resilient society” and how a new global history of trauma and our psychiatric future can be rewritten through a historical examination of our psychological wounds—from wars, colonialism, and pandemics to the violence of the state, the household, and capitalism.
