Talk title: Multispecies Ethnography and Epidemiological Puzzles
"Climate change and our technological inputs into ecosystems have created novel risks to human health. Tracking down the mysterious causes of new or resurgent diseases often requires information about human-animal interactions in outbreak zones. Recent anthropological studies of zoonotic disease have yielded vital insights into the evolving ecologies of health. An ethnographic focus that moves beyond the human to include the habits of other species living in humanized environments can identify health risks. It can also raise new questions about transformations in disease dynamics."
