we kindly invite you to participate in the 7th International
Interdisciplinary Conference Medica. The general aim of our annual
meetings has been to analyze public and self-referential
representations of health and illness in various contexts and to bring
together local and international scholars in order to build up a
sustainable network for future discussions and co-work. The 7th
conference concentrates on power relations in medical context(s). This
time we particularly look forward to papers dealing with power issues
and the panel discussions are going to follow these three broad themes:
- Techniques and Technologies
- Illness Narratives
We warmly welcome scholars interested in medical folkloristics,ethnomedicine, medical or cultural anthropology, ethnobiology, ethnobotanics, illness narratives, and other related subjects.
The registration and thesis deadline (300 words max.) is 17 February 2010.
