Upcoming conference in the UK

Via the always fascinating Somatosphere blog, an announcement about an upcoming conference:

“Medical Anthropology in Europe: Shaping the Field”
June 1-2, Oxford, UK

“Medical anthropology has just as long a history in Europe as in North America. However, European medical anthropologists are often unknown in Britain. One reason is that they often do not write in English or only sporadically. Perhaps, precisely due to the different languages, different medical anthropological perspectives have had time to gain some maturity and develop into sometimes quite distinctive schools. After the first RAI conference on ‘Medical Anthropology in Britain Today’ in September 2007, this second RAI conference will invigorate our own medical anthropological teaching and research by getting to know and interacting with mostly, but not exclusively, European colleagues.”

Hosted by the Royal Anthropological Institute. Full program available here.
