International Advisory Board member for the new journal Medicine Anthropology Theory (MAT). MAT is a new, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal in medical anthropology, the anthropology of biomedicine, science and technology studies, and critical global health studies. MAT seeks to provide a forum for top-notch scholarship, engage ‘applied’ anthropologists and activists, and rethink classical anthropological theory in light of contemporary ethnographic research in biomedicine and health. The journal will be fully online and indexed. As an International Advisory Board member, I help guide MAT through this transition period as they establish a new identity, vision and goals for the journal at the University of Edinburgh.
As an IAB member, I advise the editors and editorial staff on all matters relating to the journal’s aims, ethos, and scope, including the contribution of new ideas, journal policies, and critical perspectives on the place of MAT in a changing open-access publishing landscape.
