The Cascadia Seminar: Ethnographic
Adventures in Medical Anthropology
April 12-14, 2013
at Simon Fraser
British Columbia, Canada
The Cascadia Seminar is an experiment in creating a new kind
of intellectual space for medical anthropology. The Cascadia
Seminar is a small, intimate, high-interest, low-cost weekend
conference organized collaboratively by medical
anthropologists on faculty at a number of different
universities and colleges in the US Pacific Northwest and
(the Cascadia region). Simon
Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, will
host the second Cascadia Seminar. The first was in March
2011 at the University
of Washington in Seattle.
Medical anthropologists (from everywhere) are invited to
submit abstracts. Please send your abstract (350 words
maximum) by December 1, 2012 as an electronic attachment to
Abstracts will be reviewed by a committee
of medical anthropologists on faculty at our various
institutions, all of whom also plan to attend. The committee
will select seven abstracts, seeking papers that promise to be
ethnographically rich and intellectually exciting. Decisions
announced by December 31, 2012.
The Cascadia Seminar will begin the evening
of Friday April 12, 2013 with a keynote address by Margaret
Four papers will be presented on Saturday April 13, and three
on Sunday April 14, with no concurrent sessions. Each paper
presenter will have forty minutes to present a substantial,
well worked-out paper, with ample time for lively discussion.
All participants will attend all papers, and optional no-host
meals together will offer additional opportunities for
conversation. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
The conference will be free of charge,
though preregistration will be required in order to keep
numbers manageable. Some people may want to stay with family
or friends in the Vancouver area; a block of rooms will also
be available at a reduced rate at a nearby hotel. For more
