Weissbourd Dialogue: 
The Individuated ‘Dividual’ or What is Culture Good For? 
Usha Tummala-Narra (Boston College) & Sean M. Dowdy (University of Chicago)

This “Weissbourd Dialogues” seminar will use anthropological ideas originating in studies of personhood in South Asia to explore the emotional world of a first-generation Indian American as he struggles with the transition to adulthood and cultural expectations of personhood that differ from the normative American conceptions of individuality. In exploring the case, supervisor and case presenter will examine the clinical utility of the idea of the “the dividual,” incorporating the South Asian view of a person as a multiply-authored divisible composite, and how it may clash with clinicians’ assumptions of personhood informed by a more bounded American individualism. Case presented by Sean M. Dowdy, PhD, with clinical supervision by Usha Tummala-Narra, Phd
