RACE UNCHRONICLED. A DISCOURSE OF PSYCHOANALYSIS IN MID-20th CENTURY UNITED STATES / RAZA IGNORADA. UN DISCURSO DEL PSICOANÁLISIS EN LOS EEUU DE MEDIADOS DEL SIGLO XX

Elizabeth Ann Danto

Resumen


Effectively ending federal non-involvement in mental illness in the US, John F. Kennedy signed the Community Mental Health Care Act in October 1963. Some psychoanalysts took to the CMHC movement, some not, while others had been working in community-based services like the Lafargue clinic in Harlem since the 1950s. To what extent did America’s historical tendency to merge social class and race influence these psychoanalysts, their theories, their formal associations like APSaA? To understand the psychoanalytic profession’s construction of race and of white-black relations in the 1960s, this essay is not a history but rather a historiographic inquiry that explores how key players of the era itself understood the challenge.
