Medical Pluralism in Soviet and Post-Soviet Eurasia

Workshop

Medical Pluralism in Soviet and Post-Soviet Eurasia
March 2, 2012
Franke Institute for the Humanities
1100 E 57th St
9am-5pm

Many observers have noted the multiplicity of approaches to healing that have emerged in post-Soviet Eurasia over the past 20 years. Aside from transformations in the domain of biomedicine, these range from healing practices linked to religions traditionally associated with the region (such as Russian Orthodoxy and Buddhism) to those derived from New Age spirituality to self- and mutual-help movements such as Alcoholics Anonymous. This workshop attempts to systematically address some of the questions that arise from post-Soviet Eurasia’s heterogenous culture of medicine and healing.

Papers for this workshop will be pre-circulated rather than presented publicly. We hope that participants come prepared to discuss and provide paper contributors with feedback.

To register and access papers, please contact immertreu@uchicago.edu

Sponsored by CEERES, the Norman Wait Harris Fund, The Dept of Comparative Human Development, The Dept of Anthropology and the Franke Institute of the Humanities.
