Psychological & Psychiatric Anthropology

Psychological and psychiatric anthropology are two fields concerned with a number of issues around the interaction of social structure, cultural processes, and human psyches. Related fields include cultural and social psychology, cross-cultural or transcultural psychiatry, psychiatric epidemiology, the old “Culture and Personality” studies in
anthropology and the related literature on “national character” in sociology and political science, as well as aspects of medical anthropology and sociology. This page draws together various resources for researchers in these areas.
