Crónica ESHHS & CHEIRON

Encuentro conjunto de la ESHHS & CHEIRON

Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, 27 junio – 1 julio 2016

Noemí Pizarroso López (UNED)

Poco antes del inicio de las vacaciones estivales se celebraba el congreso conjunto de la ESHHS (European Society for the History of the Human Sciences) y de la Cheiron (International Society for the History of Behavioural and Social Sciences), sociedades que cada cuatro años se reúnen, alternativamente, en uno u otro lado del Atlántico. Esta vez el encuentro ha tenido lugar en Barcelona, con un programa que ha sabido estar a la altura de los conocidos atractivos turísticos de la ciudad, y que ha logrado que nos desplazáramos cada día al campus de Bellaterra de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB), donde las sesiones tuvieron lugar. Quizá una de las primeras cuestiones a destacar sea esa: el volumen e interés del programa. Nada menos que tres mesas paralelas, distribuidas a lo largo de tres días y medio, que han podido generar alguna que otra dosis de frustración entre quienes veíamos coincidir intereses. Afortunadamente, nada que los amenos y caseros coffee breaks no hayan permitido arreglar.

La riqueza del encuentro, obviamente, fue mucho más allá de lo cuantitativo. En lo que a procedencia geográfica se refiere, más allá de los habituales colegas de EEUU y del largo y ancho de Europa, hemos podido disfrutar de una nutrida representación latinoamericana, con colegas de Brasil, Argentina o Chile, de Australia y hasta de Taiwan. En términos de contenido creo que hay que resaltar, y celebrar, la apertura de este encuentro a la historia de la ciencia en general y a la historia de las ciencias humanas, en particular. Se ha ido esta vez mucho más allá de la historia de la psicología, que ha venido ocupando, a pesar del nombre de las sociedades en cuestión, un lugar bastante preeminente. Sin duda ha jugado aquí un papel importante la figura de Annette Mülberger, principal encargada  de la organización del congreso, a la sazón actual directora del Centro de Historia de la Ciencia de la UAB (CEHIC).

Estudios sobre la locura y su historia

La Universidad de Oulu (Finlandia) ha puesto en marcha una red de investigación dedicada a Estudios sobre la locura y su historia (Madness studies). Las perspectivas desde las que trabajan abarcan desde la historia de la psicología y la psiquiatría, a la psiquiatría clínica, la sociología, la antropología, filosofía o los estudios literarios. Aunque el objetivo es global, la red se centra sobre todo en el contexto europeo y nórdico.
Captura de pantalla 2015-05-18 a la(s) 17.17.49
La red, que acoge calurosamente a miembros de todo el mundo, nos invita a participar y difundir su trabajo.
Captura de pantalla 2015-05-18 a la(s) 17.28.56Uno de sus promotores, actual presidente de la ESHHSPetteri Pietikäinen, acaba de publicar en inglés su libro, “Madness. A history“, premio nacional (en Finlandia) al mejor libro de no-ciencia ficción 2013.  El libro da cuenta de la locura desde la antigüedad a la modernidad, ofreciendo un paisaje tan amplio como detallado de la enfermedad mental y sus variedades en la civilización occidental. El autor examina las fuerzas sociales y culturales que dan forma a las perspectivas médicas, la invención y desarrollo de diagnósticos así como de las teorías y métodos de tratamiento y experiencias de los pacientes dentro y fuera de la institución mental. Las múltiples fuentes examinadas, desde los escritos de los  psiquiatras hasta los relatos de los pacientes hacen de este libro una obra de referencia.
