Chris Philo Back Catalogue/Unpublished Works

by Chris Philo

With some hesitation, I reveal that a very substantial ‘Back Catalogue’ of unpublished – or extremely hard-to-find – papers by myself, individually and in some cases with valued co-workers, has been unearthed, where necessary digitised and now given an on-line presence. All of these papers are now mounted on the University of Glasgow’s ENLIGHTEN ‘Open Access’ system (thanks to UoG Library staff for their generous assistance) and can be located through the portal at the following URL:

There are essentially two sets of papers: (1) a suite of Findings/Discussion Papers associated with the ESRC-funded Social Geographies of Rural Mental Health Project that I ran in the early- to mid-2000s with Hester Parr and Nicola Burns; and (2) a collection of unpublished project or personal working papers, conference papers and semi-published University Occasional/Working Papers.

The Rural Mental Health Project papers comprise a very substantial preliminary writing-through of empirical materials gathered by the project, with relatively limited interpretation, albeit with signs of how we would subsequently develop our arguments about these materials in published works. Revisiting these papers, however, I realise how much we never translated into the published works, notably all of the materials generated to do with ‘drop-ins’, facilities/services of various kinds, networks and GP involvements. The hope will be that readers might find materials here that are both interesting in their own right and also still of some pertinence with respect to the current situation of mental health experiences, provisions, policy and practice in the Scottish Highlands (and maybe in other rural and remote localities).

The other collection of papers contains many topics on which I have never formally published – the reflections on Adorno and Horkheimer’s Dialectic of Enlightenment, on Vico’s ‘poetic history/geography’, on the historical geography of the English ‘idiot asylum’ system, on the historical geography of Medieval ‘outsiders’, on the ‘Lampeter School of Human Geography’, the pre-/early-history of children’s geographies, etc. – while other papers, notably the lengthy 1986 ‘Same and Other’ piece, do stand very squarely at the heart of my overall vision (for a social-historical geography of ‘otherness’/‘madness’/‘unreason’) that has been central to my thinking for many years ever since. Only one of these papers was ever submitted to an academic journal (where it met with the dreaded ‘rejection’ letter). Some might suppose that these papers were best left hidden in the bottom of my filing cabinets, but maybe others will take the view that there remains something of value in having these works now available for wider consultation.

The full list of these ‘Back Catalogue’ papers is as follows:
