Queen Mary, University of London is delighted to host this two-day workshop on anthropological methods in clinical practice and research. The workshop will be introduced by Professor Kamaldeep Bhui (QMUL). The speakers are leading experts in the field of ethnography, anthropology and psychiatry.
Medical anthropology examines the social and cultural dimensions of health, illness and healing. Its central research paradigm -ethnography- is a qualitative research design aimed at exploring cultural phenomena. Through participant observation, the observer engages in ongoing activities of a cultural group and records observations allowing for an in depth description of the experience of illness. This two-day workshop provides an introduction to anthropological methods through lectures, seminars and practical workshops and focuses upon a number of topics: setting up an ethnographic study, participant observation, ethics, data analysis and writing ethnography. These themes will be illustrated through lectures on specific health-related topics. Furthermore, participants will be encouraged to set up their own ethnographic research projects.
The workshop will take place in the vibrant central campus of Queen Mary University in Mile End, on the 10th and 11th of July 2013 and will run from 9 to 5. Both days will commence with presentations and discussion and it will continue with practical workshops.
Places are limited, so please register your interest and book your place as soon as possible.
