These essays hold in tension the ways that categories of moral, mental, and emotional experience are at once spaces in which and techniques by which globalized power dynamics and postcolonial realities are grappled with. Ascriptions of madness, bestiality, fatalism, and disease are, on the one hand, addressed by these authors as means by which colonial and postcolonial “orders” are made and “disorders” pacified. On the other hand, it is in domains of emotional experience that fall along the margins, or that erupt into clinical, legal, and interventionist apparatuses, that the authors locate the intimate straits, the deep contradictions, and the often impossible stakes of transnational and transcultural structures of power and meaning.
