Frank W. Stahnisch publiziert ein Special Issue im »Journal of the History of the Neurosciences« mit dem Titel »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 ist Historiker der Medizin- und Neurowissenschaften, Herausgeber des internationalen »Journal of the History of the Neurosciences« und ist von Juni-August 2016 Fellow am Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften in Bad Homburg.
