Hi Victoria you may not remember me but we were in contact a couple of years ago about a conference in New York which was looking at the poetics of pain. I couldn't make it but I'm planning to come to New York this May for a week (first-time visit holiday sightseeing really) and wondered whether you were still in New York and free to meet up. It would be great to catch up on ideas and meet a fellow medical anthropologist!
Also wondered whether you know of any open seminars or conferences that may be going on the week of 16 May 2012. It's just a flying visit and you may not get this message in time. Fingers crossed. Anyway hope you are well all the best Natasha
Hi Victoria just wondered if you knew of any conferences in medical anthropology coming up in the next year that you could recommend. I'd like to be more in touch with any job openings in the states too! Hope your MA studies have gone well. Best wishes Natasha
Hi Thanks so much for forwarding the info on the pain conference. I'd love to make it as its completely relevant to my research and it would be great to link in with fellow anthropologists, but no funding and I've missed the deadline for abstracts by 2 days!!! Be great to hear how it went though!
Yes i'm very interested in more details re call for papers on pain, im just working on two journal papers on chronic pain - one on perceptions of chronicity, the other on embodied awareness and methods of pain management. Never been to NY!
I've recently become a member of open anthropology co operative and am looking for fellow researchers who may have an interest in more applied medical anthropology - particularly in areas such as chronic illness/pain and wellbeing. And to link in with news on forthcoming conferences and any relevant journals. Just wondered what your background/interests were.
