Social Medicine Writing and Publishing Workshop

Rio de Janeiro, 27 May 2020

Call for Participation

The key aim of this interactive workshop is to build the writing and publishing capacity of early-career researchers based at institutions in Latin America who are working in the fields of social medicine / collective health and are interested in publishing in English-language journals. The workshop will be co-led by the Editors of the journals BioSocieties (Professors Anne Pollock and Nikolas Rose), Economy and Society (Professor Nikolas Rose), Medical Anthropology Quarterly (Professor Vincanne Adams) and the Bulletin of the History of Medicine (Professor Jeremy Greene).

The workshop will take place at the Institute for Social Medicine at the State University of Rio de Janeiro and is funded by the Wellcome Trust. It is part of the global social medicine network: https://globalsocialmedicine.org

Participants should send a CV and a 300-500 word abstract for the article that they plan to develop in the workshop to the workshop organizers by March 1, 2020.

Please send CV and abstract to Carlo Caduff: carlo.caduff@kcl.ac.uk

Acceptance decisions will be made by the workshop organizers. Decisions will be based primarily on the strength of the abstracts submitted, with some consideration of topical and institutional balance and of who would benefit most from participation in the workshop. Participants will submit a full draft of their papers by May 1, 2020, one month before the Workshop. Accommodation will be provided for all participants who are not based in Rio de Janeiro. Travel bursaries will be available for scholars based at institutions outside Brazil.
