The MASA Blog Wants YOU! (to write a blog post)

The Medical Anthropology Students Association would like to invite graduate and undergraduate students from across the globe to submit 500-1000 word posts for for us to publish on the MASA blog.

These posts should be related to medical anthropology and can be about current events, your research, policy or anything else that you think we will be interested in. The posts should be well-written, clear, and without much jargon and technical language.  We are especially eager to hear about your own research and will be happy to publish your field photos (as long as you have obtained permission from the people in them).

Please post this to your department listservs and pass it along to anyone who might be interested in contributing. This is a great opportunity to introduce the medical anthropology community to your field site, and to start interesting conversations about research methods, ethics and for discussing interesting research in medical anthropology.

You don’t need to know WordPress to write a blog post, simply send us the text as a Word document, and we will let you know whether we will accept to publish it, or whether edits are necessary. The posts should not have been published elsewhere previously, but if they are, you must have permission to republish it and provide us with the original citation. In addition to appearing on our blog page, we will also link to the posts on our Facebook page so thousands of people will be able to see them. For more info or to send a submission please contact Jonathan Stillo (
