Following far too long a silence, I’d like to introduce three exciting scholars who will be joining Somatosphere as regular contributors:
Kalman Applbaum teaches medical anthropology and global studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He formerly taught marketing management at Tel Aviv University and at the J.L. Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. He is currently writing a book entitled Marketing Involution and the Fixing of Global Healthcare.
Angela Garcia is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine. Her research interests include medical anthropology, subjectivity, suffering and psychoanalysis. Currently, Angela is completing a book entitled The Pastoral Clinic: Addiction and Absolution Along the Río Grande, (to be published by the University of California Press) in which she explores the phenomenon of heroin overdose among rural Hispanos in northern New Mexico.
Sadeq Rahimi is a CIHR Research Fellow at the Department of Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School, an Associate Fellow at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University, and a Clinical Fellow at the Boston Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. His main research interest has been the relationship between culture, identity and mental health, a line of inquiry which has gradually evolved into his current work on political subjectivity, psychosis and meaning.
Thanks to everyone who responded to our call for contributors. We will also have a number of posts and series of posts from guest contributors over the following months. If you missed the deadline and are still interested in contributing as a guest, feel free to contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
