Plans are underway for WWU’s Anthropology Department to host the 4th Cascadia Seminar in Medical Anthropology! The Cascadia Seminar is an experiment in creating a new kind of intellectual space for medical anthropology in the “Cascadia” region (i.e., the US Pacific Northwest and British Columbia). 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 British Columbia.

The Cascadia Seminar will begin the evening of Friday April 21, 2017 with a keynote address by Amade M’charek, Professor of Anthropology of Science at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam. Over the weekend we will hear presentations from 7 scholars. The sessions are not concurrent so that we can promote dialogue. As a way to encourage student-faculty networking, undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for posters which will be displayed throughout the weekend and discussed during coffee breaks. Posters are accepted on a rolling basis.

Be sure to submit an abstract or poster before the November 28 deadline and remember to register to this free event!
