Subject: CFP: Romania in the transnational healthcare space: actors, practices, and social geographies Conference of the Society for Romanian Studies (SRS) Bucharest, 26-30 June 2018

*CFP for the panel: *

*Romania in the transnational healthcare space: actors, practices, and
social geographies*

Conference of the Society for Romanian Studies (SRS) Bucharest, 26-30 June


Convenors: Sabina Stan (Dublin City University), Valentin-Veron Toma
(Romanian Academy) and Alina Aluculesei (Romanian Academy)

We are looking for papers on Romania’s place in and contribution to
transnational healthcare spaces in Europe and beyond. We define
transnational healthcare in an encompassing manner as processes
contributing to accessing or providing health services in places other than
one’s country of residence. Papers should link practices of access to and
provision of health services at the micro, regional or national level with
Romanian, European and global cross-border care policies, on the one hand,
and contemporary developments in Romanian society, economy and politics, on
the other.

Topics of interest include:

- social geographies of cross-border patient/ healthcare worker mobility
to/from Romania

- social geographies of transnational collaborations between healthcare
organisations (i.e. hospitals, health ministries, trade unions active in
healthcare, healthcare professionals’ associations etc.) in Romania and
other European and non-European countries

- cross-border patient/healthcare worker mobility to/from Romania and

- Romanian out-migration and transnational healthcare in Europe and beyond

- social geographies of medical tourism to/from Romania

- moralities of patients’/healthcare workers’ transnational healthcare

- European policies on cross-border care and their implementation in Romania

- the economics of cross-border care in a Romanian context

- doing fieldwork in transnational healthcare spaces

Please send an abstract of 250-300 words by email to Sabina Stan (
sabina.stan@dcu.ie) by *Sept 20, 2017*.
