The Centres for the History of the Emotions at Queen Mary and the History of Medicine at Warwick are currently collaborating on a history of mental health care in post-war Britain. The first stage of this research has been a witness seminar involving leading policy makers, practitioners, and historians. The appointment of two postdoctoral fellowships, one based at QMUL in the Centre for the History of the Emotions, the other at Warwick in the Centre for the History of Medicine, will provide an opportunity to examine in depth one aspect of this history: the relationship between ethnicity and mental health in Britain since 1945. The application deadline is 11 May 2012, and more information can be found here.
