9780719054563: The Borderland of Imbecility: Medicine, Society and the Fabrication of the Feeble Mind in Later Victorian and Edwardian England
Reseña del editor:

Feeble-mindedness was a late-Victorian and Edwardian obsession. This is an examination of how and why certain children and adults were labelled as "feeble-minded" and segregated into special schools and colonies during this period. The book exploits a variety of archival sources and a range of contemporary medical, educational and parliamentary material. Arguing that compulsory segregation served a multitude of social, political and professional ends, successive chapters explore key themes: the birth of a concept of a "borderland of imbecility" in the late-19th century; the emergence of new institutional facilities at the turn of the century; the medicalisation of the feeble mind; the conflation of the feeble-minded with criminals, prostitutes and paupers; the educational and occupational strategies designed to reclaim the feeble-minded; and the statutory measures framed to regulate the borderland in 1913 and 1914.
