first_img2nd “Health in Transition” Conference, Romanian Academy of Sciences Pocket Deadline: 20 February 2012Open to: Medical anthropologists and social science healthcare researchersCosts: 10 Euros conference fee for presenters and participants, to be paid during on-site registrationDescriptionThe second “Health in Transition” conference will be held at the Romanian Academy of Sciences, in Bucharest, from the  7 until the 8 June 2012.With notable exceptions, the topics of health and medicine in post-socialist Europe have received limited anthropological attention compared to research on both the global ‘North’ and ‘South’. Implicitly, medical anthropological research from academic institutions in Central and Eastern Europe is little known by scholars from other parts of the world.The goal of this Conference is therefore twofold. First, it brings together medical anthropologists and social science healthcare researchers with an interest in the changes affecting health and medical care in post-socialist countries. The Conference will therefore explore the challenges that medical systems in the region have faced during the last two decades of market economy and social upheaval.Secondly, the Conference aspires to provide a forum for debates over the place of anthropology amongst other social sciences in the region. It will emphasize the need for enhanced awareness and acknowledgment of medical anthropology while highlighting its potential for applied, critical andengaged research.The Conference builds on the Health in transition: (Bio)Medicine as culture in post-socialist Europe Conference held at the Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, on 10-11 June 2011. An annual series of events on the topic of Health in transition is thus to be inaugurated. With a focus on Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe as well as the former Soviet Union, organizers welcome contributions based on ethnographic research, including, but not limited to:contemporary forms of biomedical care, ethics and governance;impact of Europeanization and globalization on local health practicesnew patterns of medical approaches to disease;intersections of health with gender, ethnicity and other markers of social differencepersonhood, the body and bio-politics;development of health-related professions;health and healthcare among migrant and refugee populations;poverty and unequal access to health;state ownership and privatization of health careuses of ethnography in health policy and practicemedical anthropology and the question of post-socialismEligibilityThis call for papers is open to medical anthropologists and social science healthcare researchers with an interest in the changes affecting health and medical care in post-socialist countries.CostsThere is a conference fee of 10 Euros for presenters and participants, that is to be paid during on-site registration.ApplicationPlease send abstracts and further enquiries to [email protected] deadline for abstracts (300 to 400 words) is 20 February 2012.
