Medicine Anthropology Theory: an open-access journal in the anthropology of health, illness, and medicine

Medicine Anthropology Theory MAT – is a new, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal in medical anthropology, the anthropology of biomedicine, science and technology studies, and critical global health studies.

The journal will be fully online and indexed. The first issue will be published this December.

Submissions are currently being accepted for the following sections of the journal: Articles, Book and Film Reviews, Think Pieces, Photo Essays, The Nightstand, Dissertations in Brief, and Teaching Materials. Descriptions of each type of submission and manuscript guidelines are available at: www.medanthrotheory.org. Please send submissions and queries to: editorialinquiries@medanthrotheory.org.
