Interdisciplinary Seminars in Medical Anthropology

The MARG seminars take place fortnightly on Tuesdays from 1-2, in the Dawson Building Seminar Room (D104), ground floor, unless otherwise indicated. The Dawson Building seminar room (D104) is ‘41’ on this map. They are open to all; please bring your own sandwiches, although tea and coffee is normally available. On the weeks when we don’t have seminars, we can have an informal brown bag lunch meeting in the Common Room, 1st floor Dawson Building.
We welcome proposals for discussion papers, presentations, etc. If you would like to contribute, please contact Dr Andrew Russell or Dr Claudia Merli. Seminars will continue next academic year. If you would like to be included on the MARG mailing list to receive information on these and other announcements, please contact Vicki McGowan.
