Welcome to the Biosocial Society

The BioSocial Society is an international academic society which aims to foster closer collaboration between those biological and social sciences engaged in exploring human biological and social diversity. It draws its membership from a wide range of academic disciplines, particularly those engaged in ‘boundary disciplines’ at the intersection between the natural and social sciences, such as: biocultural anthropology; medical sociology; demography; social medicine; the history of science; and bioethics.
