Organisers: Hannah Brown (Durham) and Alex Nading (Edingburgh)

This workshop will explore some of the various ways in which thinking about non-human animals can expand our notions of health, well-being and pathogenicity. We ask contributors to draw upon ethnographic or historical to research think through how animals might provide new leverage upon some key concepts in medical anthropology, including forms of biopolitics that extend beyond the human, practices of inter-species care, and forms of medicine involving animals.
