334 Prologue A corridor, the narrow area that leads to or from somewhere, a passageway that is situated in between exits or entrances and that connects rooms, is often a waiting room for appointments, such as for a doctor. It leads to the main space and what that space offers or requires. It can also become a meeting place, a space in which to encounter something new, as its in-betweenness suggests. In addition, a corridor has a unique character of its own. In our research data, Finnish writers describe their memories of different mental hospitals in

) Interaction in Isolation Cells of Mental Hospitals Monika Ankele Fig. 1: Web made of threads that the patient had picked out of his sheet and glued to the wall using bread (cf. Weygandt 1902: 380). This article leads us into these closed rooms that served to separate patients. It focuses on those moments when the inhabitants tried – with the aid of merely a thread, a bed linen, a blanket – to suspend the given spatial structure, to have an impact on the unequal power relation that were inscribed in this place, or simply to create a new spatial situation.

Exclusionary Infrastructures: Crisis and the Rise of Sectarian Hospitals in Northern Pakistan EMMA VARLEY INTRODUCTION By building on the emerging anthropology of clinics in crisis, this chapter will explore how hospitals are observed and imagined to operate as sites which mirror and perpetuate the social segregations and structural inequali- ties associated with Shia-Sunni hostilities in Gilgit Town, the capital of northern Pakistan’s semi-autonomous Gilgit-Baltistan region. In so doing, I explore the complex ways that Shia and Sunni health

Shifting responsibilities in the medical field: US-American bioethics and its move into the hospital setting HELEN KOHLEN How bedside ethics gave way to bioethics is the subject matter of this arti- cle.1 In this transformation process, the evolvement and development of institutionalized ethics committees have played a decisive role. They serve as a vehicle for the historical analysis. The driving forces that gave impetus for establishing these committees and the way they have been shaped by bioethics are identified. The key questions are: what
