GART-PSYSPAC Psychiatric spaces in transition: discourse, dwelling, doing

I will present the research project I’m currently working with. The project is about Gartnavel Royal Hospital and explores and maps the entangling of worded programs, forms of inhabitation and practices of encounters present with the material spaces of psychiatric transition, in historic, present and (hopefully) also future perspectives. The project is still in a start-up phase and I would like to take this opportunity to discuss and get feedback on the project – in terms of research design, methodology, theoretical framing, memories or in any perspective you found interesting.

Dr Ebba Hogstrom is a Marie Curie Research Fellow at Human Geography at the University of Glasgow, working with the research project GART-PSYSPAC: psychiatric spaces in transition – discourse, dwelling, doing with prof. Chris Philo and Dr. Iain Smith, Gartnavel Royal Hospital.
