Speakers Series 2018-2019, Autumn

Guest lecture by Associate Professor Jenny-Ann Brodin Danell, Umeå University

In this talk I will discuss various aspects of how complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is establishing as a medical subfield, and how this process is questioned and negotiated by a number of actors (such as researchers, medical professionals, users/patients, politicians, and interest organizations). This will be based on several studies I have done on CAM, based on bibliometric studies but also on interviews and documents.
