Stevan Weine is a psychiatrist, is a researcher, writer, teacher and clinician in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the International Center on Responses to Catastrophes, at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His scholarly work focuses on the personal, familial, social, cultural, and historical dimensions of trauma and migration. In 1999 he was awarded a Career Scientist Award from the National Institute of Mental Health on “Services Based Research with Refugee Families” for which he conducted an ethnography of Bosnian adolescents and their families. He was principal investigator of a National Institute of Mental Health funded research study called “A Prevention and Access Intervention for Survivor Families” that is investigating the Coffee and Family Education and Support intervention with Bosnian and Kosovar families in Chicago. Weine is author of two books. When History is a Nightmare: Lives and Memories of Ethnic Cleansing in Bosnia-Herzegovina (Rutgers, 1999) is based upon survivor’s oral histories. Testimony and Catastrophe: Narrating the Traumas of Political Violence (Northwestern, 2006) is a narrative inquiry of diverse testimony readings from within four different 20th century socio-historical occurrences of political violence. Weine is currently Principal Investigator of three NIH funded studies:
(1) An Ethnographic Study of Preventive Mental Health Services for Adolescent Refugees (R01);
(2) Migrancy, Masculinity, and Preventing HIV in Tajik Male Migrant Workers (R01);
