Call for papers: medical anthropology in East-Central Europe

Friday 9 December 2011, by Vincent Battesti

Cargo, the journal of the Czech Association for Social Anthropology, welcomes contributions to its June 2012 special issue on medical anthropology in East-Central Europe (see attachment below).
- (Re)producing medical anthropology in Central and Eastern Europe

The deadline for abstracts is Dec 20, full papers should be submitted by Feb 29.

Medical anthropology today is one of the most dynamic and vibrant fields within the anthropological enterprise, contributing substantially to the enhancement of anthropological theory and a better understanding of crucial social processes in the contemporary world. The significance of topics such as the impact of new genetics, the role and effects of new medical technologies, public health measures in transitional economies, the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on the scientific enterprise and medical treatments, and a wide range of bioethical (and many other) issues have attracted the close attention of anthropologists worldwide. In spite of the considerable international recognition reflected in the extensive amount of work on these and similar topics, the relevance of medical anthropological research is insufficiently recognized on the local level by academic communities in Central and Eastern Europe, where social and cultural anthropologists prefer to pursue different topics.
