“The Subaltern Clinic” considers Frantz Fanon’s political writings alongside his clinical work, most of which he conducted at the Blida-Joinville Psychiatric Hospital in Algeria between 1953 and 1956. The essay considers the political and clinical aspects of Fanon’s work to show how, in his writings, the clinic emerges as a subaltern space, where questions of violence, war, colonial madness, and postcolonial trauma are central.
