Law and medicine have known a specific development, in Egypt, at the beginning of the 19th century. Different Egyptian courts dealt with cases that implied a psychiatric dimension in both penal and civil proceedings. Through the journal al-Muhâmâ, it is aimed to give an account of the multiple intersections of knowledge and categories, their location in the contemporary Egyptian legal and judicial dynamic, and the mutations that they imply in the understanding of both law and the human psyche, at a pivotal historical moment for Egypt.
All sessions of the MPI-TAU Transnational Legal History Workshop will be conducted on Zoom, and are based on pre-circulated papers. Registration for participation is required and open until one week prior to the event. Please register here.
