Symposium "Beyond Biosocialities in Medical Anthropology"

17th - 19th January 2013, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The field of medical anthropology has enjoyed explosive growth since its emergence roughly forty years ago, driven both by tremendous interest in the innovative ways in which it has addressed understanding human relations, the increasing importance of biomedicine in everyday lives and in framing and understanding basic human problems, and the rise of global health as a field of practice.

A three-day symposium will be held to take stock of where we are now and ask how we might move beyond a biosociality paradigm to address critical issues at the boundaries of nature, society, health and medicine today.

Be excited and get more information here.
