Fresh perspectives: Social Research on Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR)


This event will bring together researchers who are attending to ‘the social’ in AMR, including anthropologists, sociologists, historians, geographers, artists, philosophers and other related scholars. While many are engaged in productive interdisciplinary work within their every day research, this symposium presents an opportunity for concentration on disciplinary work within the social sciences and humanities. Formulated as a work-in-progress event, we hope attendees will exchange ideas about approaches and theory that have been developed and applied in their on-going social research on AMR.

You can learn more about the symposium on the AMIS website, including the relevant deadlines, as well as download the abstract submission and participation form. If you have any questions, feel free to drop a line to
