Organization: Nicolas Henckes, Volker Hess, Emmanuel Delille, Marie Reinholdt, Stefan Reinsch, Lara Rzesnitzek,


This workshop will investigate the multifaceted practices developed by clinicians, epidemiologists, biologists, administrators and patients to negotiate and objectify the boundaries of diagnostic categories. In contrast with constructionist perspectives, our goal is not to show the less than solid nature of core psychiatric categories, but rather to explore the already internally contested and marginal categories devised to target conditions situated at the borders of psychopathology.
