The 2019 Cascadia Seminar-Vancouver will bring together 40-50 people interested in exploring cutting-edge medical anthropology topics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in a seminar setting. This relatively small, intimate, low cost conference will take time to deeply explore a small number of ethnographically grounded papers which have been competitively peer-reviewed for their cutting-edge applications and/or intellectual provocations.
The 2019 Cascadia Seminar-Vancouver is scheduled to take place during the two days (Nov 19 & 20, 2019) before the Joint Canadian Anthropology Society and the international annual American Anthropological Association Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, November 20-24, 2019. The seminar is organized collaboratively by medical anthropologists on faculty at several different universities and colleges in the US Pacific Northwest and British Columbia (the Cascadia region).
The Seminar is free, though preregistration will be required in order to keep numbers manageable.
Participants pay for their own travel, room and board. A block of rooms will be available at a reduced rate at a hotel located on UBC campus. Information on additional, alternative accommodation options will be posted on this website soon.
