What A 1993 Outbreak Can Tell Us About Interdisciplinary Approaches to Pandemic Preparedness

In 1993, the Four Corners region of the Southwestern United States experienced an unknown virus outbreak that killed its victims within 48 hours. While the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) turned to biomedical science to understand the mysterious virus, the affected Indigenous community turned to their own history.

Emergent Anthropology: Reimagining U.S. Medical Anthropology in Theory and Practice

This article is part of the following series:

The American Anthropological Association website identifies four subfields of anthropology (archaeology, biological, cultural, linguistic) and reserves a separate section for “applied and practicing anthropology.” In our collective experience, we have found this division between ostensibly “academic” and “applied” anthropology problematic, as it limits the possibilities of a broadly conceptualized and enacted medical anthropology that is more continuous than categorical. We …

Working in a Fracture Zone: Learning to Research Mental Health from Multiple Cultures

This article is part of the following series:

We are an ensemble cast. As such, it is perhaps appropriate that one of the first places where we all came together as a team had at one point been a set for a Canadian television show.
