SoMA: Students of Medical Anthropology
EdCMA has set up a blog to keep up with the university's contributions to covid-19 research. Over the upcoming weeks this will feature op-eds by experts, summaries of past / current research, and Q&As with researchers. If you (UG/MSc/PhD) have conducted research relevant to covid-19, the EdCMA would welcome your contributions on the 'contribute' page of the blog. This blog will hopefully be a good way to keep up to date with what our uni is doing and exciting pieces being written.
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.
