Presented by Dr Erminia Colucci
Monday December 8 at 12:30-1:30 pm in Room 410, Level 4, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton
During this seminar, Erminia will discuss the use of visual methods to research in global and cultural mental health, illustrated through examples from her recent “Breaking the chains” ethnographic photo/film documentary project. The documentary depicts the use of physical restraint and confinement of people with mental illness in Indonesia and the efforts to eradicate this practice that is known as ‘pasung’ in Indonesia but widespread also in other countries.
