Externalising the Symptom: Radicalised Youth and The Membrane

Stephen Muecke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Forty years developing and refining the unique field of ethnopsychiatry in France – a field that doesn’t exist as such in English-speaking countries – gave Nathan the background and expertise for him to be commissioned to write a report on the radicalisation of French youth by extremist Islam. The result was a report, and also the autoethnographic work, The Wandering Souls, that I translated.
