CFP: Challenging Medical Knowledge Translation

Challenging Medical Knowledge Translation – Convergence and Divergence of Translation across Epistemic and Cultural Boundaries

Palgrave Communications (https://www.nature.com/palcomms/ ) the open access journal from Palgrave Macmillan (part of Springer Nature),  which publishes research across the humanities and social sciences, is currently inviting article proposals and full papers for a research article collection (‘special issue’) on ‘Challenging Medical Knowledge Translation – Convergence and Divergence of Translation across Epistemic and Cultural Boundaries’: https://www.nature.com/palcomms/for-authors/call-for-papers#translation

This collection is being edited by: Professor John Ødemark (Associate Professor of Cultural History and Cultural Encounters, University of Oslo, Norway), Professor Eivind Engebretsen (Professor of Medical Epistemology, University of Oslo, Norway)

The aim of this collection is to develop contemporary knowledge translation (KT) in medicine by challenging it with current cultural and humanistic theories of translation. In the process of doing this, however, we will also challenge theories of translation within the humanities by juxtaposing them with the scientific practice of KT.

Submit a research paper

This is a rolling article collection and as such, submissions will be welcomed at any point up until the end of October 2019. To register interest prospective authors should submit a short article proposal (abstract summary) to the Editorial Office (palcomms@palgrave.com) in the first instance.

Palgrave Communications uses an Open Access model. Learn more here:  https://www.nature.com/palcomms/about/openaccess
