NEW JOURNAL: "Health, sickness and culture"

2005/01/28    SUSANNE

A new journal of health, sickness and culture has finally been published and is now available
for subscription. It is the result of an initiative by researchers from the Institute of Anthropology in Aarhus and Copenhagen as well as from the Faculty of Health Sciences in Aarhus.

Journal of Research of Sickness and Society (Tidsskrift for Forskning i Sygdom og Samfund) is a cross-disciplinary journal which has its basis
in medical anthropology. The aim and scope of the journal is to promote and develop research
which lies in the interface between health science and the humanities/social sciences.

The objective of the journal is to work as a forum for these disciplines to meet and inspire each other - epistemologically, methodologically and theoretically - in different research settings.

The journal conveys the debate and theoretical development which takes place in the growing professional cooperation and research initiatives
emanating from the above mentioned interface.

The journal addresses itself to all who are interested in research of sickness and society and in particular to health professionals in
research and educational settings with an association to interdisciplinary environments .

The journal is published in Danish or Scandinavian and will appear
twice a year.

Planned volumes:
Vol. 1: Positions (published January 2005)
Vol. 2: Narratives (Spring 2005)
Vol. 3: Health Promotion and Prevention (Autumn 2005)
