A Culture of Psychosis: A psychosocial case study approach to contemporary 'ordinary psychosis'
  The proposed research project aims to investigate this changing set of clinical issues – which might be tentatively grouped within the category of 'ordinary psychosis' – via the development of a specialized methodology: a psychosocial case study approach. In this methodology, clinical/biographical material will be historicized, explored via modes of critical the-matic/discourse analysis, before both the case details and associated socio-historical circumstancesare subjected to a psychoanalytically informed analysis. The research thus aims to make a contribution – methodological and conceptual – in terms of how we think both ordinary psychosis in society andwhat we might call today's society of ordinary psychosis.
