SoMA: Students of Medical Anthropology
Students of Medical Anthropology (SoMA) is a group run by postgraduate students within the Edinburgh Centre for Medical Anthropology. It is open to all students and early-career researchers with an interest in medical anthropology.
SoMA organises student-led events that provide early-career scholars with a space to develop their work in dialogue with fellow researchers in the growing field of medical anthropology. We also run a monthly book club.
SoMA members include PhD students of the Department of Social Anthropology working on diverse health-related research projects, as well as master's students and undergraduates. Our membership also extends beyond the Department, and includes early-career scholars from the social sciences, humanities, medicine and more.
