MAYS Annual Meeting

MAYS (Medical Anthropology Youth Schoals) 8th Annual Meeting 2017:

"Medical Anthropology Beyond Academic Borders"

in collaboration with SoMA

15 - 16 June, University of Edinburgh

This was a two day conference in which early career scholars came from around the world to share papers on thier current research, and discuss practical ways and directions medical anthropological work can be used and made available outside academia, spark collaboration with other professionals, and provide the foundation for a professional career.

The morning were set for paper presentations and discussions, and the afternoons were occupied by workshops from anthropologically trained academics and professionals currently working outside academia.
