MAAH = Network “Medical Anthropology at Home”
(founded 1998)

The Medical Anthropology At Home (MAAH) initiative is a network of and open to anthropologists from the European countries working mainly in their own country. The purpose of the network and the biennial meetings connected to it is to act as an open forum for the exchange of ideas and information of a theoretical, methodological and empirical nature through regular gatherings. The meetings follow a set format during all three previous meetings (Zeist, the Netherlands 1998; Tarragona, Spain 2001; Perugia, Italy 2003; Seili, Finland 2007; France 2010): participants are requested to submit full papers before the meeting. No parallel sessions are organised during the meeting and a limited number of participants (30 in total) are selected.

One of the last MAAH meeting took place on the island of Seili on the SW coast of Finland on March 16-18, 2006. It was promoted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, University of Helsinki, Finland and the Doctoral School for Public Health Research who also act as the organisers. The overall theme of the meeting is Coming Home: from biomedicine to everyday health issues. Targets for the meeting are:

Rethinking home: why is ethnography at home significant? The organisers encourage to consider how the at home concept of culture in health, illness and medicine has evolved and what its research in medical anthropology is today.

Current problems in the anthropology of psychiatry: as examplified by the many problems in mental health care for immigrant and ethnic groups - how can anthropology contribute to the re-conceptualisation of culture in psychiatry?

Outside biomedicine: the perceptions and concepts of health and illness of mundane people may differ to a large extent from the hegemonic biomedical concepts, which is why ideas surrounding caring in health care settings need to be discussed.

MAAH is a network of medical anthropologists who do research in their own culture and society.
The network’s aim is to bring together medical anthropologists in order to discuss theoretical, methodological and practical issues in relation to health and culture. The network has a international scientific advisory board, consisting of:

-Dr. Els van Dongen +, Universiteit van Amsterdam, Nederland
