This week, many of our readers (and staff members here in the office of Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry) are attending the American Anthropological Association’s annual meeting in Washington, DC. For those of you presenting, we wish you the best of luck in delivering thoughtful and productive presentations. To all attendees, we hope you have pleasant travels to the nation’s capital, and return from the conference with new knowledge and fresh ideas.
Much like conferences in our field, CMP social media is a common space for intellectual inquiry about contemporary issues in anthropology. In the spirit of building this communal space electronically, we now invite our followers to submit approximately 500-word blog entries– ranging from brief commentaries on a research project, recent presentation, or reflections on topics in medical anthropology, medical humanities, and social medicine– to be considered for our blog.
We ask that submissions to the blog be widely accessible to readers across anthropology and the humanities: from advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, professors, as well as applied practitioners and interdisciplinary researchers. Accepted pieces will be posted here and shared via our Twitter account. This is an opportunity to showcase your work to new audiences and to gain valuable insight into producing widely accessible, digital scholarship. Please direct your submissions to Julia Balacko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for following CMP social media. We look forward to receiving your guest blog submissions and hearing more from you about exciting new research from the AAA Annual Meeting.
