Quijada Publishes Volume on Circumpolar Community’s Health-Seeking Practices

Justine Quijada, assistant professor of religion, is the author of two new publications. They include:

“Signs as Symptoms in Buryat Shamanic Callings,” published in The Healing Landscapes of Central and Southeastern Siberia, with David Anderson, ed. The publication is supported by the Canadian Circumpolar Institute (CCI) Press in cooperation with the Centre for the Cross-Cultural Study of Health and Healing, University of Alberta. The edited volume is the first in a possible series that addresses health problems in Native Canadian communities by both training doctors to consider cross-cultural perspectives in health, and to train more Native Canadians as doctors. The book series will document circumpolar people’s traditional medical and health-seeking practices.

And “Soviet Science and Post-Soviet Faith: Etigelov’s Imperishable Body,” published in American Ethnologist 39:1: pages 138-154, 2012.
