Edinburgh Centre for Medical Anthropology: Welcome to EdCMA


Welcome to EdCMA

We are delighted to welcome new and returning students to EdCMA for the first semester of 2020/21. We're really disappointed that we've not been able to host the usual welcome gathering and we're missing the usual in-person contact. But we're delighted that we're finding new spaces for intellectual and social collaboration! 

We're busy planning online events, so keep an eye out for them on our events and news pages. We'd love to hear from you, so please get in touch with Dr Lucy Lowe if you have any questions or if you'd like to propose an event.

In the meantime, you can keep up-to-date with our activities on our COVID-19 Perspectives blog, the first Edinburgh-hosted issue of Medicine Anthropology Theory, and through our social media channels - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
