Davantage centrée sur la vie quotidienne que sur la clinique, elle relève les défis qui sont nés des limites de la psychiatrie transculturelle ou encore de l’ethnopsychiatrie d'autrefois. Cette matinée d'études permettra à trois de ses figures principales (Anne M. Lovell, Stefania Pandolfo et Veena Das) de présenter leurs recherches, conduites sur trois terrains extrêmement différents (la Nouvelle-Orléans après la catastrophe de Katrina, un bidonville de Rabat au Maroc et un quartier pauvre de Dehli), en dialogue avec une philosophe (Sandra Laugier) et un psychiatre (Richard Rechtman).
