Congress Theme: Track Changes: Reflecting on a Transforming World
The 14th international SIEF congress (International Society for Ethnology and Folklore) invites you to Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the autonomous community of Galicia in northwestern Spain and the destination of the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James), one of the most important pilgrimage routes from medieval times. There could be no better place than Santiago de Compostela to host a conference for those well versed in the science and art of observing and analysing human tracks – ethnologists, folklorists, anthropologists and other trackers of culture. The congress’ theme Track Changes: Reflecting on a Transforming World draws upon both the ethnological explorations of human life and its continual change as well as the transforming, yet constant, Camino.
The call for papers, posters and AV media are now open and will close on 15 October 2018! Before you propose a paper, a workshop or roundtable contribution or a poster or an AV media contribution, please read the theme of the congress, the rules and instructions on the call for papers page, and then browse the list of panels and other formats. The call for AV media can be found here.
There are a number of panels which may be of interest to medical humanists eg. Medical Humanities transforming in the 21st Century (Medi02) and ‘Healing’ as harmonization of ‘micro’ and ‘macro’ cosmos? Conceptualizations and practices of ‘health’ and ‘healing’ in Europe and beyond’ (Medi03).
