MAT Virtual Issue: Outbreaks, Epidemic, and Infectious Diseases

06 Apr 2020

The editorial collective and editorial team at the Edinburgh Centre for Medical Anthropology are delighted to announce the publication of MAT’s virtual issue “Outbreaks, Epidemics, and Infectious Diseases”. 

Over the past six years, Medicine Anthropology Theory has published a large variety of readable, accessible and original research engaging ethnographically and critically with infectious diseases and epidemics. In the context of a global pandemic, it is crucial to have cross-cultural perspectives, and a global scope to our understanding of epidemics and our responses to them. This virtual issue, as well as the extended collection curated by our Assistant Editor, have been retrospectively curated in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We hope this collection will continue to enrich critical thinking, foster interdisciplinary exchange, and support the ongoing work of scholars in our community and beyond.
