Medicine:The Occupied Clinic

The Occupied Clinic: Militarism and Care in Kashmir is a monograph by Saiba Varma, in the field of medical anthropology. It was published in October 2020 by Duke University Press (as well as Yoda Press) and went on to receive the Edie Turner First Book Prize in Ethnographic Writing by the American Anthropological Association.
Varma's scholarship discusses the broad effects of, what she calls, India's occupation of Kashmir on the mental health of local population. She probes into how local psychiatric clinics tackle these issues but in the process, become microcosms of the broader political fractures governing Kashmir.
