  • Nadine Beckmann (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an academic eventParticipation in academic conference


Medical anthropology is a practice of continual empirical negotiation. Its investigative tools and means of analysis are often shaped according to methods in other fields and by dynamic transitions in the global health landscapes of infections and disease, as experienced in the current COVID 19 pandemic.

The ‘Mobilising Methods’ conference seeks to explore the creative and dynamic tensions that arise in conceptual and methodological terms between medical anthropologists and with those who work closely with us across a range of institutional and collaborative settings and diverse health conditions. The conference will focus on the challenges and opportunities of contemporary medical anthropology before, through and beyond COVID 19 that require engagement with translation, collaboration and communication. We encourage contributions reporting innovative methodologies and communication strategies.
