Anthropology & Medicine
ISSN (printed): 1364-8470. ISSN (electronic): 1469-2910.
Anthropology & Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal which expands upon the growing theory and research linking anthropology with medicine. It is the successor to British Medical Anthropology Review and publishes original papers within the broad framework of medical anthropology addressing a world-wide audience. With biomedicine continuing to grow in technical sophistication and with the proliferation of disease categories, anthropology has extended its boundaries to embrace new frameworks. The globalisation and politics of biomedicine, narrative approaches to illness, new reproductive technologies, indigenous African and Asian medicines, local critiques of professional healing systems, modern and post-modern identities of individual states and their impact on sickness, together with developments that link ethology and population genetics to medicine are addressed by Anthropology & Medicine . It provides a critical platform for this diversity and promotes a cross-fertilisation of concepts at the borderland of culture and medicine. In addition to peer-reviewed articles, Anthropology & Medicine maintains a generous book reviews section and a section on conferences, workshops and relevant courses. The journal also features periodic reviews and updates on recent methologies, information on funding for research, and a regular debates section.
