ANNOUNCING H-MedAnthro: H-Net Network on Medical Anthropology

Sponsored by

H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online and The Society for Medical Anthropology

ABOUT H-MedAnthro

This list addresses the needs and concerns of medical anthropology graduate students, practicing anthropologists, scholars, and scholar activists who address issues of local, national and international health importance. The list and its accompanying web sites form the hub of an active research community and a storehouse for information supporting the endeavors of medical anthropologists and their colleagues in allied social science fields. We use these technologies to inform the general public and policy-makers of the scope and breadth of medical anthropology. The discussion list and accompanying web sites, like the field of medical anthropology, draw upon and benefit from a wide range of theories and methods. They also serves as a space to promote and foster collaboration and coalition-building.

Like all H-Net lists, H-MedAnthro is moderated to edit out material that, in the editors’ opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical matters (such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net’s procedure for resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article II, Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at:
