The Global Health Governance Programme and Centre for Medical Anthropology are co-hosting a guest seminar with Dr Darryl Stellmach on the 4th September at 9.30am here in the Usher Room.
Darryl is a Post-Doctoral Associate in medical anthropology, food and nutrition security at the University of Sydney. On a part-time basis, he also works with the public health research unit of Médecins Sans Frontières-UK (MSF), overseeing the introduction of anthropological methods and analysis to MSF field programs. Darryl’s research focuses on the social and political life of epidemics, food security and nutritional crises.
This talk will attempt to summarize, i), how anthropologists have been perceived and used in recent health emergencies, ii), what current initiatives are underway to integrate anthropology and social science knowledge into emergency response and iii), what future roles and potential challenges anthropologists and other social scientists might take up as they move into a more institutional engagement within global health emergencies.
The talk is FREE to attend but numbers are limited. For more information and to register please see link:-
