2015 SPRING CONFERENCE CALL FOR PAPERS
April 23-26, 2015 - Auraria Campus, Denver, CO
Holistic Health & Healing: Indigenous and Alternative Medicines
This call for papers focuses on traditional, indigenous and Native American forms of medicine; spirituality and medicine; medical marijuana, and other holistic forms of healing. This consists of but is not limited to: cultural practices; policies and general issues associated with governmental regulation; as well as access to, use of, and stigmatization associated with the use of alternative medicines. This may also include holistic approaches to personal, social, cultural, spiritual, and community wellbeing. Individual, group and panel, academic, governmental policy-based, community-based, and industry-based papers, practical demonstrations or workshop proposals are welcome. We also welcome content that is not based on the topic of the meeting, though is anthropological in nature.
If you or your community, students, agencies, coalitions, organizations, teams or colleagues have a story to tell, idea to explore, paper to present, research to expand our knowledge or experiences to share, please join us! This is an opportunity to present research in a professional anthropological venue, to an audience of professional and academic peers. Members, non-members, and students are all welcome, both to attend and to present papers and posters.
