Inaugural EdCMA Conference: Scoping Medical Anthropology

5 - 6 September 2016

Dovecote Studios, Edinburgh. 

The theme of the conference was “Scoping Medical Anthropology: Problems from Ongoing Fieldwork.” The term scoping refers both to defining the parameters of a problem and looking deeply inside one particular part of the body (in this case, a body of scholarship) in order to draw out larger lessons. This conference, organised around three panels, sought to do both:  Medical Anthropology in Global Health (Ian Harper, Alice Street, Stefan Ecks, Melissa Parker & Bob Simpson); More than Human Medical Anthropology (Beckie Marsland, Alex Nading, Emily Yates-Doerr & Ann Kelly); Medical Anthropology, Collaboration and Expertise (Alex Edmonds, Lucy Lowe, Tine Gammeltoft & Kit Davis)
