A quick recap of the conference topic 
"Medical Anthropology Beyond Academic Borders"

The MAYS 2017 conference will explore the ways in which medical anthropology can be practically and socially applied outside of academia in the public sphere, and how medical anthropologists can collaborate with other professionals.
Therefore we invite anyone who has thought about this kind of work - not necessarily only those have succeeded in reaching out beyond academic borders yet. We would like this meeting to cover ideas for future interdisciplinary work, and/or any past or present experience you might have working with other disciplines and the public.

This conference aims to open up conversation about what can we as young MedAnth scholars can do now to build public/interdisciplinary skills and find feedback and encouragement for future ideas.We are also working to put together workshops by academics and outside-academiaresearchers who have experience working interdisciplinarily. These workshops will be friendly, informal sessions where we can have a chance to learn from others' experiences and ask practical questions about what working across borders is really like, and how to find those career opportunities.

We look forward to reading your abstracts!

Warm wishes,

Lilian and Mari, 
your MAYS Coordinators
