The Humanities Center welcomes Emily Wanderer (Anthropology) for a colloquium. Her respondents will be Brenda Diergaarde (Graduate School of Public Health) and Mari Webel (History).
Emily Wanderer is an anthropologist of science who works primarily in Latin America. Her research integrates medical and environmental anthropology to ask how biological research generates new understandings of nature, how these in turn reshape human practices and uses of the environment, and how human and non-human life are brought into scientific regulation and governance. She received her PhD from MIT in 2014.
Her research and teaching interests include the anthropology of science and technology, medical anthropology, environmental anthropology, risk and security, multispecies ethnography, and Latin America.
