Definitions of treatment conceal as much as they reveal. In thinking about treatment, scholars need to be aware of the sociocultural and political-economic contexts just as they need to be sensitive to alternative narratives beyond biomedical accounts. Scholars need also to consider treatment’s pluralities, its performativity, its elements of sensation and of the everyday, its sources of conflict and tension. To say this is to admit that treatment as a category has an evolving biopolitics that requires ongoing attention to both its histories and present practices.
