Frank W. Stahnisch »New Perspectives on Forced-Migration in Neuroscience during the Twentieth Century«
Frank W. Stahnisch publishes a Special Issue in the »Journal of the History of the Neurosciences« entitled »New Perspectives on Forced-Migration in Neuroscience during the Twentieth Century«.

Abstract:
This special issue of the Journal of the History of the Neurosciences, comprised of six articles and one commentary, reflects on the multi- fold dimensions of intellectual migration in the neurosciences and illustrates them by relevant case studies, biographies, and surveys from twentieth-century history of science and medicine perspectives. The special issue as a whole strives to emphasize the impact of forced migration in the neurosciences and psychiatry from an interdisciplinary perspective by, first, describing the general research topic, second, by showing how new models can be applied to the historiography and social studies of twentieth-century neuroscience, and, third, by providing a deeper understanding of the impact of European émigré researchers on emerging allied fields, such as neurogenetics, biological psychiatry, psychosomatics, and public mental health, etc. as resulting from this process at large.

Frank W. Stahnisch is a historian of medicine and neuroscience and an Editor-in-Chief of the international »Journal of the History of the Neurosciences«. From June-August 2016 he is a Fellow at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften in Bad Homburg.
