Armor and anesthesia: exposure, feeling, and the soldier's body. (4/12)

For many civilians, the high-tech weapons, armor, and military medicine with which U.S. soldiers are equipped present an image of lethal capacity and physical invulnerability. But, as this article explores, soldiers themselves just as often associate the life-sustaining technology of modern warfare with feelings that range from a pragmatic ambivalence about exposure to harm all the way to profoundly unsettling vulnerability. This article, based on fieldwork among soldiers and military families at the U.S. Army's Ft. Hood, examines sensory and affective dimensions of soldiers' intimate bodily relationships with the technologies that alternately or even simultaneously keep them alive and expose them to harm. I argue that modern military discipline and technology conspire to cultivate soldiers as highly durable, capable, unfeeling, interchangeable bodies, or what might be called, after Susan Buck-Morss (1992), anesthetic subjects. But for soldiers themselves, their training, combat environment, protective gear, and weapons are a rich font of both emotional and bodily feeling that exists in complex tension with the also deeply felt military imperative to carry on in the face of extreme discomfort and danger.  (+info)

This companion piece to the Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI), which had its debut in the DSM-5, provides a high level overview of the CFI and its supplementary modules as well as a wonderfully practical guide for their implementation in clinical practice. The editors, a team of expert cultural psychiatrists led by Roberto Lewis-Fernandez, have assembled chapters that in aggregate, illuminate the principles of serious engagement with culture as a means of re-contextualizing the lived experience of mental illness. The handbook highlights the clinical utility of the CFI for diagnostic assessment and as a tool for rendering treatment optimally relevant and acceptable to any patient. Within the CFI approach, culture is recast as not exotica or mere descriptor, but rather as fluid, dynamic, multi-dimensional, and intrinsic to patient understandings, values, and needs that, in turn, invariably shape the arc of treatment seeking and illness. This comprehensive overview of the CFI-and all that this ...

2. Pneumonia (Focal) is defined as clinical pneumonia in the absence of wheeze, which is closely aligned with the pneumonia definition used in the Australian Breathe Easy studies.. Because of a technical issue in providing cough audio files to adjudicators for review, results for croup are now expected in November. Tony Keating, CEO and Managing Director of ResApp said, The results for lower respiratory tract disease, asthma/reactive airways disease (for children over 2 years of age) and primary upper respiratory tract disease demonstrate that our algorithms effectively aid clinicians in making important clinical diagnostic decisions. Asthma, in particular, is the most common chronic lower respiratory tract disease in childhood throughout the world. Our diagnoses are especially useful in settings such as telehealth, where a stethoscope and additional diagnostic tests such as a chest x-ray or blood tests are not available. We plan to pursue FDA submissions for these three diseases in parallel to ...
The Hampshire depression project, published recently, was a large well designed randomised controlled study of teaching practitioners about the recognition and management of depression and using patient improvement as the outcome measure. Its results were disappointingly negative, failing to show any increase in recognition or patient recovery rates.1 These findings herald the need for a major change in thinking about improving the management of depression in primary care.. Through the 1990s educational initiatives have been mounted to implement expert guidelines on depression-based on the promising results of a study of educating 18 general practitioners in Gotland.2 A two day course on recognising and managing depression given by psychiatrists was followed by increased antidepressant prescribing and decreased use of tranquillisers. Admissions for depression and the suicide rate both went down. The costs of the exercise were only 0.5% of the savings on admissions.. Subsequently, consensus ...

Members of underserved racial/ethnic minority groups who participate more actively in the treatment process have almost three times the odds of staying in treatment and following up with appointments compared to standard treatment. Improving patient-clinician communication may therefore improve treatment engagement, from starting and participating in treatment actively to maintaining treatment for the successful resolution of symptoms and improvements in quality of life. Interventions that enhance communication behaviors by asking patients about their cultural views, using open-ended questions, establishing rapport, and using patient terms can increase patient participation and satisfaction. Interventions that expose clinicians to cultural content by asking patients about preferences for treatment, barriers to accessing services, the role of support from family or friends, and that encourage information exchange also improve treatment engagement. The goal of this study is to develop a ...

Men with EDs are underdiagnosed, undertreated and under-researched.13 ,23 ,28 ,29 In particular, there is a lack of qualitative research on mens experiences of EDs and a continuing perception of EDs as a female illness.13 ,17 ,22 Our findings suggest that men may experience particular problems in recognising that they may have an ED as a result of the continuing cultural construction of EDs as uniquely or predominantly a female problem. The culturally prevalent view that EDs largely affect teenage girls meant that many of these young men only recognised their behaviours and experiences as possible symptoms of an ED after a protracted delay, mitigating possibilities of early intervention and improved prognosis. Models of help-seeking recognise that, when bodily or social functioning is disrupted, people evaluate their experiences in relation to illness representations or stocks of knowledge that help them make sense of their symptoms and decide on appropriate actions.41-43 Thus, ...

That definition understates the complexity of possible chromosomal variations and conflates a cultural construction - gender - with chromosomal sex determination in ways that dont jibe with modern understanding. Gender is not necessarily established by the individuals chromosomes. According to the World Health Organization, Gender, typically described in terms of masculinity and femininity, is a social construction that varies across different cultures and over time. There are a number of cultures, for example, in which greater gender diversity exists and sex and gender are not always neatly divided along binary lines such as male and female or homosexual and heterosexual. One may or may not agree with that assessment of gender vs. sex, culture vs. science, but the WHO analysis points to the fact that these questions are not nearly so cut and dried as the binary framework suggested in Rep. Riddles bill. At a minimum, it would set the stage for years of litigation as every ...

The various norms and values of aging that have been created by humans in the course of history have been largely ignored by gerontologists, who are thought to be more interested in the objective laws that govern science than in the subjective experiences that contribute to the aging process. This thought-provoking study belongs to the genre known as humanistic gerontology and it explores the attitudes toward aging as expressed by society. Outlining the cultural construction of old age and the social and psychological ramifications that are often imposed on the aged by external influences, it focuses on the status and treatment of old age and presents a portrait of aging in a cultural and historical perspective illuminated by diverse national literatures. Unlike any other book on the subject, this volume is an attempt to add to the body of knowledge that helps illustrate, explain, and bridge the dichotomy that still exists between the scientist and the humanist in the field of aging. The various ...
Whats challenging and fascinating, however, is exploring the dissonance between my intellectual distrust of cultural constructions of gender and my undeniable attachment to certain preconceived notions of raising a girl and having a son. As research for the show (and for parenting in general) Ive been reading Chasing Rainbows: Exploring Gender Fluid Parenting Practices edited by Fiona Joy Green and May Friedman. Its a collection of essays both personal and academic with a variety of perspectives on queer feminist parenting and how to challenge gender norms and foster gender-creativity in children. Its brilliant, and while its a bit late for me, as a cis woman hopelessly attached to her Bettie Page hair, with an extensive childhood CV of princess costumes, cheerleading camps, and ballet lessons, I hope to give my little foetus more encouragement to be playful and fluid in their performance of gender.. Im already running into problems.. The April 30th audience gets to vote on the babys ...
Introduction. Gender as a social and cultural construction has an impact on physiotherapist and patient beliefs, understanding, and behaviour and could affect physiotherapy encounters. Gender studies in early rehabilitation are scarce. The aim of this thesis was to study gender during different parts of the rehabilitation process for primary health care patients with neck and back pain.. Method. The analyses are based on data from three different samples. One sample is composed of physiotherapists and two samples consist of patients consulting primary health care providers because of neck and back pain. All data were gathered from primary health care provided in Västerbotten County.. Baseline data on 73 physiotherapists and 586 of their patients with neck and back pain were collected by questionnaire during three consecutive days in 2006. Patient data included affected pain site and treatment procedures used by the physiotherapist (Study I). Differences in treatment procedures used by female ...
for all life that is not merely value based. This is intrinsically related to our conceptual habits of attempting to significantly isolate experiences within objective, value-based psychological, epistemological, historical and cultural constructions. Value must be judged in a hierarchy of things and according to Nagarjuna, things do not exist (or are empty) because they are not dissociative of our experience. A thing is of conventional reality - only existing in our fabricated delusion, isolated in language and in thought - as no thing truly exists independent of a conditional flux. The idea of the emptiness of things, and a dismissal of anthropomorphic value classification, can be severely misinterpreted, positing, for instance, that humans are part of the greater whole of nature and thus their actions are natural. In coalescence with the emptiness of reality, this may also perpetuate an exploitative ethos that disrupts and destroys the global climate, ecosystems, and ...
This course offers students a survey of American history in its broader conceptualization, taking into account cultural, artistic and memorial aspects. It addresses the cultural construction of memory by interrogating various geographical sites and texts in which traces of the past are physically ingrained, commemorated, represented, celebrated or contested. Every module will also address the history and circulation of resources within the countrys borders, in an attempt to highlight how the exploitation/extraction of natural resources have shaped the political, social and territorial configurations of the country. In other words, we will explore how natural landscapes also become witnesses of political decisions and conflicts. Starting from Bull & Hansens work on modes of memory (antagonistic, cosmopolitan, agonistic), this class asks the question why and how America remembers the past through landscapes, monuments, memorials, literary texts or visual art forms that offer diverse modes of ...
Approaching disability as a cultural construction rather than a medical pathology, this book studies the impact of disability and concepts of disability on composers, performers, and listeners with disabilities, as well as on discourse about music and works of music themselves. For composers with disabilities--like Beethoven, Delius, and Schumann--awareness of the disability sharply inflects critical reception.

This volume brings together the latest approaches in bioarchaeology in the study of sex and gender. Archaeologists have long used skeletal remains to identify gender. Contemporary bioarchaeologists, however, have begun to challenge the theoretical and methodological basis for sex assignment from the skeleton. Simultaneously, they have started to consider the cultural construction of the gendered body and gender roles, recognizing the body as uniquely fashioned from the interaction of biological, social, and environmental factors. As the contributors to this volume reveal, combining skeletal data with contextual information can provide a richer understanding of life in the past.. ...
by Silvio Calzolari - Disasters and calamities seem to be the most overwhelming evidence of the precariousness of the human condition, of the fragility of societies and of any cultural construction. A calamity is a situation of extreme criticality that occurs when a potentially destructive and dangerous agent strikes a population that is caught in a situation of great vulnerability. Disasters and calamities cause a sense of insecurity and terror. But how do we react to external and sometimes invisible factors, as in the case of epidemics that can suddenly strike everything that seems to guarantee our protection and security (family, home, society)?
Dalys revolutionary ideas were presented with humor, wit, and especially word play. She understood that language shapes ones sense of self and believed that words could be a powerful tool in the fight against injustice. When colleagues rejected her feminist challenges, she said they suffered from academentia and she agreed (with double-entendre glee) that her work was positively revolting. She was especially famous for creating new meaning with well placed hyphens or slashes, as when she called people who treated women resistors as maladjusted rather than oppressed, not therapists, but the/rapists and questioned whether their urging women to re-cover was no more than asking them to sweep their justifiable outrage back under the proverbial rug. At every turn, Daly used words to stop readers in their tracks and make them re-think cultural constructions masquerading as unassailable fact ...

The burden of childhood respiratory diseases is an important public health problem. Asthma is the most common childhood chronic disease and numerous studies have documented its rise in worldwide prevalence over the past several decades. Moreover, normal pulmonary function development during childhood is important for reaching maximum attainable adult lung function. While the etiology of childhood asthma and development of normal pulmonary function development are complex, a growing body of evidence shows that a variety of environmental exposures are important determinants of childhood airway diseases and normal development. A greater understanding of the biological mechanisms influencing childhood asthma and the natural course of pulmonary function development is critical to minimizing the adverse effects of environmental exposures. We investigated pathophysiologic mechanisms using advances in non-invasive technologies including exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and high resolution computed tomography ...

Background: Prenatal exposure to air pollution has been associated with childhood respiratory disease and other adverse outcomes. Epigenetics is a suggested link between exposures and health outcomes.. Objectives: We aimed to investigate associations between prenatal exposure to particulate matter (PM) with diameter. Methods: We meta-analyzed associations between exposure to PM10 (n=1,949) and PM2.5 (n=1,551) at maternal home addresses during pregnancy and newborn DNA methylation assessed by Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation450K BeadChip in nine European and American studies, with replication in 688 independent newborns and look-up analyses in 2,118 older children. We used two approaches, one focusing on single cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites and another on differentially methylated regions (DMRs). We also related PM exposures to blood mRNA expression.. Results: Six CpGs were significantly associated [false discovery rate (FDR). Conclusions: Several differentially methylated CpGs and ...

More. The biological effects of genes depend upon how they are expressed in target tissues at various points in time, which is determined by their epigenetic state and in turn may be influenced by the environment.Some experimental data suggests that such influences can be transmitted across generations.In this chapter, I propose a general statistical framework for modelling how environmental and germline genetic influences on disease is mediated by epigenetics, both within the individual and across generations.The approach is illustrated on simulated data and on a study of the effect of air pollution and the ARG/NOS family of genes on childhood respiratory disease.Less ...
Over the last twenty years there has emerged a body of work that questions the assumptions that lie beneath psychiatric knowledge and practice.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recommended tighter blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, to minimise the risk of long term vascular complications.. An updated NICE guideline on diagnosing and managing type 1 diabetes in adults recommends a target HbA1c level of 48 mmol/mol (6.5%) or less1: this is lower than the clinical guideline on type 1 diabetes published in 2014, which recommended an HbA1c target of less than 7.5% for prevention of microvascular disease and 6.5% or less in patients at increased risk of arterial disease.2. A target HbA1c target level of 48 mmol/mol (6.5%) or lower is also recommended in children and young people with type 1 or 2 diabetes to minimise the risk of … ...
Dear Sir, We would like to draw your attention to an apparent inconsistency in two related guidelines published by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), in response to your recent review article of the NICE guideline on antibiotics for early onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) [1]. Maternal prolonged rupture of membranes (PROM) before delivery is a commonly used risk-factor to suspect EONS. The duration of rupture of membranes, for it to be termed prolonged, is controversial. Most published studies have chosen candidate cut-off times from 12 - 24 hours, with no ideal study looking at the relationship between duration of membrane rupture and subsequent neonatal infection. NICE have recently published clinical guidelines (CG149) for the management of newborn infants with EONS [2]. While this guideline clearly defines PROM for preterm infants as that lasting for greater than 18 hours, they have not done so for term infants. Instead, they have referred clinicians to the ...
As two of the developers of the recently updated National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline on feverish illness in children,1 we welcome the paper by De and colleagues2 In their study, the authors investigated the potential of using the white blood count (WBC) as a screening tool in the triage of children with feverish illness.. Paediatricians and other clinicians have struggled for years to find ways of identifying the handful of children with serious illnesses among the thousands who present with fever. It has often been the case that accurate histories, careful examination and clinical acumen are not enough and children with serious illnesses are missed while others with self-limiting viral illnesses are unnecessarily admitted to hospital. In an attempt to reliably identify children with serious illness, we are tempted to use a range of investigations. These include urinalysis, chest X-rays, acute phase reactants and the WBC. During the production of the NICE feverish ...

Medical anthropology is founded on an epistemological openness to alternative understandings of the body, illness, disease, and healing. It explores how health is at once a biological, social, and historical fact. Anthropology assumes a body that is both biologically given as well as culturally invented and historically situated so that we can even speak of local biologies. This course introduces methods of studying and understanding how the body, health, and healing are shaped by historical processes, political struggles and cultural meanings as well as the knowledge and power of expanding global biomedicine and biotechnologies. In offering a comparative perspective on human afflictions, suffering and healing in societies, we will explore the cultural and historical specificity of what appear to be biological givens, and do so by drawing from a variety of anthropological questions, theoretical approaches, and research methods. The course introduces both the specificity of local medical ...

Medical anthropology is playing an increasingly important role in public health. This course builds on basic concepts introduced in ANTH 2504 with an emphasis on the contributions of medical anthropological theories and concepts towards an understanding of complex health-related behavior. This course examines why public health policies and interventions are more likely to be effective if the beliefs and behavior of people are understood and taken into account. Some examples of particular health problems are examined, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, malaria and other communicable and non-communicable diseases to show how an anthropological approach can contribute to both a better understanding of health and illness and to more culturally appropriate public health measures. ...
In Chapter 4, Treating the Family, you focus on how the West Clinic team assumptions of normative family roles relate to explanatory models behind treatment decisions. Can you expand on how other normative assumptions contributed to treatment decisions?. M.B.: I think that a lot of the decisions about restoring functioning were motivated by ideas about what defines success in adolescence, and so a lot of the decisions were oriented toward, getting kids into college. There was a lot of talk about getting [them] into college and getting them back into their high-achieving tracks. Of course, sometimes I think the clinicians helped families and patients get off that track, and that was also part of what they did. But I think sometimes they were implicitly motivated by middle class values about education and achievement and success. In Chapter 5, you begin with a quote by George Beard about American nervousness Without civilization there can be no nervousness…. In what ways does this quote ...

Many serious public health problems confront the world in the new millennium. Anthropology and Public Health examines the critical role of anthropology in four crucial public health domains: (1) anthropological understandings of public health problems such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes;(2) anthropological design of public health interventions in areas such as tobacco control and elder care; (3) anthropological evaluations of public health initiatives such as Safe Motherhood and polio eradication; and (4) anthropological critiques of public health policies, including neoliberalhealth care reforms. As the volume demonstrates, anthropologists provide crucial understandings of public health problems from the perspectives of the populations in which the problems occur. On the basis of such understandings, anthropologists may develop and implement interventions to addressparticular public health problems, often working in collaboration with local participants. Anthropologists also work as ...
A graduate minor in Anthropology usually consists of 12 units, but a few concentrations in anthropology require as many as 15 units (e.g., Medical Anthropology, SWLCS).
Using the tools on anthropology, you will uncover how history, geography, and our own culture can affect how we treat malaria, HIV, guinea worm and other tropical diseases in the developing world, and what you can do to stop their spread.

I would consider health to be the biological status of an individual and its deviation both positively and negatively from homeostasis. Health can be affected by personal choice, culture, and environment. To me, illness is a negative deviation from homeostasis that is experienced and perceived (but not limited to) the individual with the illness. The illness should be preventable/manageable and relatively uncommon.. These definitions are strongly influenced by my family, my personal experience, and my education. I believe my definition is very biologically based and in that way, limited to my familiarity with a biological definition of health. My definition of illness is particularly influenced by my experiences and observations with my family and their bouts with illness.. In considering migraines an illness, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate someone elses migraine from a bad headache. To me, a headache is too common to be considered an illness and may go away on its own. For ...

Deadline for Abstracts: July 15th, 2012. People across the globe are navigating stratified and pluralistic health care landscapes, shaped by neoliberal policies and unequal access to medical care. The summer school explores the idea that different population groups such as ethnic minorities, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, the unemployed, and unauthorized migrants may face - to some extent - similar struggles: the experiences of living with insecurity and uncertainty, of being excluded or discriminated against in the health care system, and having difficulties accessing the treatments they consider most effective, including biomedical care and other forms of medicine and healing.. We invite participants to address national and local models of health care provision across the globe and to identify common developments and issues. Presentations should pay close attention to the growing stratification of health care systems and the many facets of inequality in different regions and ...
In this article, a type A individual is depicted as the common person to develop coronary heart disease. This individual is typically a middle aged, middle class man that adheres to the social norms in industrialized societies. Theses social norms are considered bad for the body, and in turn, help cause coronary hear disease. Social norms in our Western society contribute to the development of heart disease. Certain aspects of our society that can directly contribute to the disease include eating, exercising, and lifestyle habits. Biological dimensions of coronary heart disease include genetics, as heart disease can be hereditary. Individual aspects of the illness contribute to the physical appearance of a person. Being overweight, or having poor personal health can lead to having coronary heart disease. Cultural dimensions of coronary heart disease can include food and exercise choices, to the stress a person encounters. Western society places emphasis on fast food restaurants, and eating ...
In this short essay, I wish to briefly discuss smoking, polypharmacy, the human biome and multispecies relations, and biomedicalization as a means of stretching the common ways we think about comorbidity. My intent is to expand our thinking about comorbidity and multimorbidity beyond the individual as a unit of analysis, to reframe comorbidity in relation to trajectories of risk, and to address comorbid states of our own making when the treatment of one health problem results in the experience of additional health problems. I do so as a corrective to what I see as an overly narrow focus on comorbidity as co-occurring illnesses within a single individual, and as a complement to critical medical anthropological assessments of synergistic comorbid conditions (syndemics) occurring in structurally vulnerable populations living in environments of risk exposed to macro and micro pathogenic agents.. If you are interested in augmenting current issue article pages with an author interview or other ...

Daniel Moerman presents an innovative and enlightening discussion of human reaction to the meaning of medical treatment. Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is attributed to specific elements, such as drugs or surgical procedures, but many things happen in medicine which simply cannot be accounted for in this way. The same drug can work differently when presented in different colours; drugs with widely advertised names can work better than the same drug without the name; inert drugs (placebos, dummies) often have dramatic effects on people (the placebo effect); and effects can vary hugely among different European countries where the same medical condition is understood differently, or has different meanings. This is true for surgery as well as for internal medicine. This lively 2002 book reviews and analyses these matters in lucid, straightforward prose, guiding the reader through a very complex body of literature, leaving nothing unexplained but avoiding any ...

This course explores key concepts and issues pertaining to human health, illness, and medicine through an interdisciplinary perspective that includes biocultural and medical anthropology, the sociology of medicine, global public health, and other sources. It addresses issues of current interest, such as the health effects of modernization, development and globalization, the social determinants of health, the social construction of disease and suffering, the medicalization of reproduction and aging, and the formative role of cultures in health, illness and healing experiences. A holistic anthropological approach is used to discuss healing practices and experiences in several cross-cultural contexts, while taking a critical look at Western biomedicine as well. Medical practices are viewed as cultural systems and their relationships with other social domains and institutions are examined in comparative perspective. This course was previously SOC-283164 Health, Illness and Society. ...
Dr. Bludaus research program centers on the professional identity of healthcare workers, primarily nurses. The project that served as the basis of her dissertation was an examination of global healthcare migration through the recruitment and migration of Czech nurses; Saudi Arabia is their primary destination site. She uses a critical and applied approach to medical anthropology in order to examine the Czech and Saudi national healthcare systems and policies in relation to individual motivations for migration. A key element is the position of healthcare labor recruiters as a node in the migration chain. A large part of her research consisted of an organizational analysis of a Czech recruitment firm in which she was embedded for almost a year. Most recently, Dr. Bludau, along with colleagues in the Department of Nursing, have completed an interdisciplinary project analyzing nursing education programs to determine crucial elements of socialization and professional identity development. This pilot ...

Autism or autism spectrum conditions describe several presentations characterised by core issues with social affect and stereotyped or repetitive actions. Diagnosis is made by observation and analysis of developmental history. These are heterogeneous conditions which can carry various co-morbidities and whilst described as life-long are affected by age and maturation. Autism means different things to different people. To some it means a need for life-long support. To others it is part of the varied tapestry of humanity. To all it means a need to foster a welcoming society with appropriate support and opportunities ...

Starting in the late 1980s, the New Documentary Movement in China established a new way of looking at the world from the grass-roots up; a way of clearly understanding what drives different classes to survive and what feelings they have. They see history as wide open and clear, promising that everyone has the possibility to be recorded in history. They create history. -- From the introduction of Lu Xinyus book, Documentary China -- the New Documentary Movement in Contemporary China.. From the late 1980s, Chinese documentaries began to evolve from official, grand narratives to more personal films about ordinary people. The new films were made by young filmmakers at television stations around the country. The focus of their works turned to the present moment of Chinese society. This change of orientation was soon reflected on CCTV, Chinas national broadcaster. The documentary Oriental Horizon was launched in 1993, and telling common peoples own stories became the raison detre of the ...

A peculiar characteristic of the current epidemic across all the three most affected countries was the presentation of culture as a barrier to the effective management of Ebola. This, in the most part, can be attributed to a lack of understanding and empathy with the cultural constructions of the societies concerned. Participating in the death and decent send-off of their loved ones is an important obligation of the surviving family members and a right of the departed. It is quite possible to involve the families of victims in some way by incorporating them into the safe burial protocols. Similarly, there exists already in many cultures within the region, cultural pathways to deal with certain categories of abnormal deaths. For example death by lightning, death by drowning and suicide already fall into special categories in some cultures. Such deaths are therefore exempted from normal rituals. The challenge then will be to have Ebola classified in a similar category within this cultural idiom. ...
The destruction and survival of societies often hinges upon the ideas and the social, cultural constructions of identity and belonging. When ideas fail to incorporate people, essentialist categories of identity, historical memory, and accounts of extreme violence become interrelated, potent sources of destruction. Slavery and exclusive ownership of resources leave people starving or living in perilously polluted environments. Globalizing cultural economies threaten local systems and self-representation. Group identities may be sites of crises within nation-states and global political, economic, and cultural processes. In this course, we will take critical, anthropological approaches to studies of ethnocide, genocide, and post-conflict justice. Students will use critical, anthropological approaches to assess ethnocides and genocides from the 19th century forced assimilation and slaughter of Native Americans and Amazonian Indians to more recent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, and the Sudan, ...
Charles Briggs combines linguistic and medical anthropology with social/cultural anthropology and folkloristics. He has focused on using a variety of critical approaches in exploring how precarious poetics and social constructions of language, communication, and media structure and are structured by everyday life in zones of racialization, power, danger, and often death.
Research presented at the Anesthesiology 2012 annual meeting revealed cigarette smoke adversely affects the developing human airway, especially in prematurity. Fetuses and premature babies exposed to cigarette smoke are at greater risk for developing childhood respiratory diseases, such as asthma.. Due to their highly immature lungs, premature babies often require high levels of additional oxygen in the neonatal intensive care unit, which can put these babies at higher risk for life-long problems with lung diseases, said study author Elizabeth Vogel, M.D., Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.. Additional exposure to second-hand smoke in the home often precipitates further respiratory problems and possible return trip(s) to the ICU.. By examining human fetal airway cells from gestational ages during which rapid airway and lung growth would normally occur, we hope to understand how the developing airway is particularly susceptible to cigarette smoke with the goal of ...

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Chapter 17 203 The moral tone implied in breastfeeding knowledge is rooted in power relations that also affect the identity of mothers. We present our arguments with examples of women living in poverty, since this is a population whose breastfeeding experiences are rarely addressed in the literature. Building from critical concepts developed by French thinkers Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault, we examine closely how issues of power, morality, and identity are embedded in public health promotion of breastfeeding, and how that promotion might be changed to better address womens practices and needs. Motherhood and Ritual Medical anthropology demonstrates that the reproductive behaviors of women are heavily controlled through ritual. Reproductive rituals regulate and impose normative behaviors and often restrictive rules on women who are expected to follow them during pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal periods, constituting what ...

Covid-19 has once again contributed to discussions regarding the possible transmission of pathogens from non-human vertebrates to humans. Zoonotic diseases not only require attention to such spill-over moments, but also highlight the coexistence of humans, animals, pathogens, and parasites in what is currently being called the Anthropocene. Entanglements are multifaceted, they can be both beneficial (e.g. animal therapeutics) and harmful, and they raise ontological questions about life itself. In this seminar, we will engage in such debates from an anthropological perspective. Our main focus will be on health in a broad sense, as medical anthropology is currently calling for defining health and well-being within a multispecies reality. The various case studies we will discuss will take us to African contexts and beyond, emphasizing the importance of the ethnographic specificities of varying local contexts ...
E-Book: Taking a novel approach to the contradictory impulses of violence and care, illness and healing, this book radically shifts the way we think of the interrelations of institutions and experiences in a globalizing world.
