UCL Anthropology


Medical and Biosocial Medical Anthropology Seminar Series

Thursdays 4:30-6pm, MS Teams

Audience members are welcome to join online through the Medical Anthropology seminar channel on Microsoft Teams (if you are not a UCL student/staff and would like to join as a guest, please email Anthropology Communications).

For this term’s seminars we are inviting speakers to talk about their published or soon to be published research. While indicative topics are included below speakers will provide a relevant book chapter or journal article and this will be made available to all seminar participants in advance from the Teams channel. Speakers will start by introducing their work and the rest of the seminar will be given over to audience led discussion of the paper. Please do join us for what plans to be a very stimulating set of seminars.
