Mat Savelli (University of Oxford, 2011) is a historian of medicine with particular interests in postwar psychiatry and pharmaceuticals. His Ph.D. dissertation traced the history of psychiatry in Communist Yugoslavia (1945–1991), and he is presently editing a volume on psychiatry under Communism. At CHF he is researching the advertising of psychopharmaceutical medications in trade ephemera and medical journals in the period immediately after the launch of chlorpromazine. His other research interests include international cigarette-packaging policy and tourist casinos in Communist Yugoslavia.
