Roy Richard Grinker Biography

Dr. Roy Richard Grinker is a cultural anthropologist specializing in mental illness, stigma, autism, disability, and diversity-equity-inclusion in the workforce. He is also director of the George Washington University Institute for Ethnographic Research and Editior-in-Chief of the journal Anthropological Quarterly.

Dr. Grinker has conducted research in the U.S., South Korea, India, South Africa, Namibia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

He is the author of the award-winning book Unstrange Minds: Remapping the World of Autism, and most recently Nobody's Normal: How Culture Created the Stigma of Mental Illness. An Editor's Choice selection in the New York Times Book Review, Nobody's Normal traces the history of psychiatry, the marginalization and mistreatment of people with serious mental illnesses.

Nobody’s Normal argues that stigma is a social process that can be explained through cultural history, a process that began the moment we defined mental illness, that we learn from within our communities, and that we ultimately have the power to change. The New York Times Book Review writes of Nobody's Normal, "the book sings with Grinker's empathetic and authoritative voice."
