SSAG's Medal in Gold to Emily Martin
SSAG has decided to award Professor Emily Martin, New York University, USA, for her contributions to anthropology in a long row of influential books and articles. Her most classic book is about medicine and American culture, titled The Woman in the Body: a Cultural Analysis of Reproduction (1987). This book reads science with an eye for the cultural values that it reproduces and reinforces, even as it disavows and denies that it is a cultural product at all. Professor Martin's approach combines feminist analyses with an ethnography of science and medicine and was highly innovative and original. It moreover founded a productive and constructive way to contrast the views of medical science with those of real people from diverse social and economic backgrounds.
Professor Martin’s production of classic works has continued and also influenced feminist and gender studies outside the discipline of anthropology. She is still publishing major works that challenges new generations of young anthropologists.
On 24 April 2019 Professor Martin will receive SSAG's Medal in Gold by the King of Sweden. On the same day the 2019 the Vega Symposium is focusing on Professor Martin's research. SAVE THE DATE! ... See MoreSee Less
