Issue title: New Directions in Medical Anthropology
The publication of this volume reflects the increased importance of medical anthropology within the Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan. This volume sprung from the first graduate seminar in medical anthropology at the University of Michigan, “Theory and Practice in Medical Anthropology,” taught in 2005 by Professors Holly Peters-Golden and Elisha P. Renne. Now a regular offering in the department, the course brought together students with diverse backgrounds, including those new to the field. It was a formative seminar for many of the students whose work is published here and we all owe a great deal to Professors Peters-Golden and Renne for their intellectual guidance, passion, and creativity.
As the issue editor, I would like to thank Professors Peters-Golden and Renne for their logistical and administrative help in bringing this volume to fruition; their guidance and mentoring was absolutely crucial. I would also like to thank our anonymous reviewers, the Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan, and the staff of MDIA for their hard work.
