A Bridge and Many Crossings: The forced relocation of West African psychiatric patients to l’Asile de St-Pierre in Marseille, 1897-1914, par Katie Kilroy-Marac (Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto).

Abstract : Between 1897 and 1914, the French colonial government transported 144 West African mental patients from Senegal to Marseille to be institutionalized within l’Asile de St-Pierre.  While this endeavor was, by all estimations, a failed colonial experiment, it nevertheless produced a particular kind of medico-scientific encounter in which African bodies—and African madness—became objects of scrutiny within the Metropole itself.  This project examines the ideas about race, civilization, and madness that were articulated in and through this colonial experiment, and that emerged out of the psychiatric encounter between French doctors and African patients at St-Pierre during this period.
