Dear H-MedAnthro members,
Those of you interested in Medieval medical anthropology may be intrigued by two new papers concerning the Mediterranean in the 15th century.
Recently, the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e., the ancestor to Spanish and the other modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
The Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Study Group (ADTSG) of the Society for Medical Anthropology invites submissions for the best graduate student paper in the anthropology of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, or other psychoactive substance use.
The inspiration for this panel is the recent turn in global health towards what one might call an innovation imperative, in which technical interventions and entrepreneurial solutions to pressing and complex health problems in humanitarian and low resource settings are increasingly prioritized over other approaches.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
