PINONES RIVERA, Carlos; LIBERONA CONCHA, Nanette  y  MANSILLA, Miguel Ángel. Cross-Border Therapeutic Itineraries: Towards the Study of Medical Pluralism and Cross-Border Human Mobility. Si Somos Americanos [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.2, pp.9-37. ISSN 0719-0948.

The article addresses the issue of the epistemological obstacles present in the study of the relationship between medical pluralism and human mobility. It offers a critical review of the existing bibliography on these topics, revealing how classic studies focused on medical pluralism left aside three fundamental aspects that form what we refer to as non-placed medical pluralism: mobility, space and corporality. A critical review of these aspects in modern studies of medical pluralism led us to formulate a proposal designed to integrate the main contributions of the studies of medical pluralism from the perspective of Critical Medical Anthropology (Menéndez) with the current proposals of the Paradigm of Mobility (Tarrius). We now present our proposal, which is called cross-border therapeutic itineraries, and conclude by underlining its main contributions to the contemporary discussion in the field of medical pluralism and mobility.
