“Healing Encounters: Reinventing an indigenous medicine in the clinic and beyond” is a 5-year ERC-funded anthropological research project based at the CERMES3.

The project is structured around three sites (Healing in the City, Healing in the Forest, Healing in the Lab) and three transversal encounters (Materialsemiotic Encounters, Encounters Beyond the Human and Ontological Encounters).


The project's main ethnographic sites are in South America (Peru, Brazil), Europe (Netherlands, Italy, Spain) and North America (USA).
