Deadline for abstract submission is July 15th, 2012.

The summer school focuses on Well-being at the Margins: Seeking Health in Stratified Landscapes of Medicine and Healing. We invite advanced PhD students and junior scholars to submit abstracts, focusing on one (or more) of the themes addressed in the following panels:

1) Structures of inequality
2) Citizenship and belonging
3) Embodiment of exclusion and insecurity
4) Ethics of researching suffering and inequality

The summer school offers the opportunity to discuss ideas and results with renowned senior scholars and advanced students, and to participate in a number of related activities such as a one-day field-trip and an interdisciplinary round-table discussion. We aim at preparing the papers for publication, either in an edited volume or in a peer-reviewed journal.
