NordWel workshop "All Well in the Welfare State? Mental wellbeing and the politics of happiness"
The aim of this workshop is to bring historians, social scientists and health professionals together to discuss these emerging trends. What’s new about this recent articulation of wellbeing and happiness, if anything at all, and why now? We hope that these openly formulated questions may inspire a cross-disciplinary discussion on the following broad themes: - The social and historical diagnosis of contemporary interest in happiness/wellbeing? - The knowledge and political economy of happiness/wellbeing? - The psychologization of the political—the politicization of the psychological?
