Have any particularly strong impressions or reactions to the AAAs this year? Did any of the panels you attended stand out — particularly medical anthro-related sessions? Did anyone attend the meeting of the Science, Technology, and Medicine interest group of the SMA? Any other interesting news on anthropology of medicine or science from the conference?
Feel free to comment and discuss.

The Saturday morning panel on “potentiality and humanness” was terrific. So was Tanya Luhrmann’s rather disturbing paper Friday afternoon on Christian psychotherapy and the impact — psychological and epistemological — of evoking demons.
AAA scheduling continues to be a puzzle to me; panels likely to draw similar audiences seem very often to be scheduled opposite each other.
