The Margaret Lock Seminar
In honour of her 85th birthday in February 2021, the Department of Social Studies of Medicine is naming an annual departmental seminar after medical anthropologist Margaret Lock, one of the founding faculty members of the department. The Margaret Lock Seminar will showcase work in medical anthropology and closely related fields, focusing on scholars who engage topics in deep and committed ways, who offer nuanced analyses in global perspective, reflecting the spirit and richness of Professor Lock’s scholarship. SSoM faculty will collaborate with medical anthropologists in the Department of Anthropology to identify and invite speakers. The yearly Margaret Lock Seminar will also be an occasion to announce the student winner of the Margaret Lock Prize. The Margaret Lock Seminar will contribute to the continuous strengthening of ties between SSoM and Anthropology at McGill University.
