American Studies Association Annual Meeting 2015

October 9, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Jonathan Metzl presents “Psychiatric Diagnosis and the Heterosexualizing of Sanity”

Jonathan Metzl demonstrates how gendered and racialized heteronormative assumptions continued to structure clinical psychiatric practice after the 1973 de-pathologization of homosexuality in the DSM, arguing that clinical practice operated to redefine “normal” by coding particular gender and racial performances and object choices as mentally healthy while relegating others to the realm of disease.
