About the Culture, Medicine & Power Research Group
Culture, Medicine & Power (CMP) is an interdisciplinary research group examining the social, cultural, historical and political dimensions of health, illness, medicine, and biotechnologies. Using qualitative methods and collaborative approaches, the group conducts sociological, anthropological and historical research with regards to the social implication of biomedical knowledge and practice.
Its members are engaged in research projects located in a variety of settings in Latin America, the Middle East, South and South-East Asia, Europe and North America.
The group also hosts a series of 'conversations' with scholars from various areas to discuss current research. CMP Conversations meetings are open to all staff and students of the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine. Members from the wider research community are welcome to participate.
