  • Producing Ebola: Creating Knowledge In and About an Epidemic
    • Abstract: Try to remember what it was like during the fall of 2014. Ebola was always in the news, the virus was spreading and people were dying at an increasing rate in West Africa. Although there should have been ways to stop it, more and more people were falling ill. In the United States, there was near panic about the possibility of it coming here. In September 2014, the Centers for Disease Control released a model that estimated that, in the worst-case scenario, the number of Ebola deaths in West Africa could reach 1.4 million. There were more cases than there were beds, and the ill were collapsing outside of Ebola Treatment Centers.Anthropologists who had worked in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia—the three countries ...

  • Emerging Disease or Emerging Diagnosis': Lassa Fever and Ebola in
           Sierra Leone
    • Abstract: In February 2015, I returned to a village in Eastern Sierra Leone where I had conducted some of my doctoral research. Although located in Kenema district, one of the country's initial epicenters, it was thankfully untouched by the Ebola outbreak. Gbessy, a successful tradeswoman, expressed her continuing skepticism about the disease: "the government says that everything is Ebola, but we've had fever before. We've had diarrhea before." The point of this article is to put Gbessy's observation—that the government's treatment of this new disease was at odds with past experience and was therefore dubious—and that of many who expressed similar sentiments, into context. In doing so it will consider what such observations ... Read More

  • Missing Bodies and Secret Funerals: The Production of "Safe and Dignified
           Burials" in the Liberian Ebola Crisis
    • Abstract: In a domain of knowledge production often characterized by extreme particularism, one of the few universals acknowledged by anthropologists is that all human communities mark the threshold between life and death. Indeed, archaeological evidence of intentional burial, grave goods, and other mortuary rituals are considered a signature behavior of our species, shared only with those other forms of humanity close enough to interbreed and dating back at least 50,000 years (Than 2013). Robert Hertz, a student of Durkheim, is credited with first distinguishing theoretically between the biological reality of the human corpse and the "social lives" of dead bodies, which cannot be simply disposed of without "a sacrilege ...

  • Ebola Through a Glass, Darkly: Ways of Knowing the State and Each Other
    • Abstract: During the height of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic in Sierra Leone in 2014, the international community worked to "vernacularize" biomedical models of the disease. They did so hoping that translating biomedical models of disease into local concepts would help stop transmission (Spencer 2015:2). Health communicators encouraged people to shed the intimate behaviors of care—welcoming strangers into the home, careful personal tending to the ill, washing corpses for burial—that facilitated Ebola's spread, in addition to educating them in basic virology to reinforce behavioral changes. In spite of these mass "sensitization" campaigns (see Bolten 2012), the disease continued to spread. Medical education seemed ... Read More

  • "We Know Who is Eating the Ebola Money!": Corruption, the State, and the
           Ebola Response
    • Abstract: The goal of this article is not to understand Ebola per se, but to acknowledge that the Ebola crisis reveals certain underlying power relations and creates a special ethnographic window on the structural fault lines in the society and the nation-state. Indeed, one UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) staffer told me that the Ebola crisis served as a kind of body scan that revealed "where the tumors are located." I have chosen to think through what is revealed by the Ebola crisis by focusing on money as one among many possible sites for engagement. How money came into the country to address the Ebola crisis reveals facts about international priorities of course, but I am interested in what Sierra Leoneans' ... Read More

  • Epistemologies of Ebola: Reflections on the Experience of the Ebola
           Response Anthropology Platform
    • Abstract: The 2014–2016 outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in West Africa was unprecedented in scale and duration. Two further precedents set by this crisis were the prominence afforded to anthropology by major actors involved in coordinating and delivering the outbreak response, and the extensive self-mobilization of anthropologists in the face of an unfolding human disaster. In addition to invaluable and remarkable fieldwork conducted by individual anthropologists at the "frontline" of the response (e.g., Anoko 2014; Marí Sáez, Kelly, and Brown 2014; Faye 2014), several groups of anthropologists coalesced in September and October 2014 to support and encourage fieldwork alongside the international response, promote ...

  • Ebola at a Distance: A Pathographic Account of Anthropology's Relevance
    • Abstract: On the morning of November 6, 2014, I sat listening to opening remarks that were being given for an emergency meeting convened in Washington, DC.2 The meeting's organizers claimed as its overarching aim: "to provide actionable guidance to real-time actors in the field and to the policy community that takes into account the interrelated technical, political, social, cultural, and economic dimensions and effects of the current Ebola crisis."3 The two dozen scholars addressed that morning had been brought together, the speaker noted, to make anthropological insights "relevant" to decision-makers involved in the Ebola response. Responding to the comments, a colleague leaned in conspiratorially and murmured in my ear ... Read More

  • Domesticating Organ Transplant: Familial Sacrifice and National Aspiration
           in Mexico by Megan Crowley-Matoka (review)
    • Abstract: In Domesticating Organ Transplant, Megan Crowley-Matoka presents the reader with a seemingly innocuous statistic: that over 80 percent of all kidney transplants in Mexico are performed using organs from living, related donors (33). Indeed, she demonstrates how it is oftentimes a source of national pride, given that organ donations from family members make transplantation possible in a place where the availability of cadaveric organs, for complex reasons, is limited. Yet, what this superbly researched and thorough ethnography effectively shows is that living, related donation problematically goes unquestioned and unexamined in Mexico, in large part, because it "meshes seamlessly with long-standing cultural logics ...

  • Suicide in Sri Lanka: The Anthropology of an Epidemic by Tom Widger
           (review)
    • Abstract: Anthropology deals with "living people in small places" (Eriksen 2001). In this sense suicide raises fundamental issues for anthropologists. The person who commits suicide successfully dies and is, by definition, not available for interviewing. This may explain why anthropologists mostly pay little attention to suicide. Researchers who have ventured into this field, most notably Durkheim (1951), have had to rely on second hand information, such as published statistics, postmortem reports, hospital records, letters left behind, and interviews with survivors. Yet suicide is clearly a cultural event demanding study. Its incidence varies across societies and by social status within a society. It disrupts social ... Read More

  • Owners of the Sidewalk: Security and Survival in the Informal City by
           Daniel M. Goldstein (review)
    • Abstract: Massive street markets such as Cochabamba, Bolivia's Cancha1 sit at the crossroads of significant socio-economic transformations that have occurred in cities throughout the "Majority World"2 in recent decades. Tightly packed with fixed stalls and congested with itinerant vendors, these marketplaces stand as avatars for larger debates about the relationship between informality and illegality, physical and economic insecurity, and urban planning and modernization projects. In the Andes, anthropologists and historians have long been fascinated by the lives of indigenous market women who endure, subvert, and even thrive amidst colonial administration schemes, degrading racial ideologies, rapid urbanization, and ...

  • Patina: A Profane Archaeology by Shannon Lee Dawdy (review)
    • Abstract: Patina is a material layer that accrues over time on the surface of an object, congealing social values and a sense of the past. For many of the inhabitants of New Orleans, patina has come to signify both the emergence and submergence of the past in the present. As Shannon Lee Dawdy eloquently describes in this slim volume, patina indicates the lived experience of New Orleans space–time, a place where history lies on the surface creating economies of value, forging identities in place, as well as presenting and embodying moments of rupture and transition. From the surface of old wooden heirlooms through to the high water marks left on walls around the city by the flood surges of Hurricane Katrina, patina has become ... Read More

  • Making Refuge: Somali Bantu Refugees and Lewiston, Maine by Catherine
           Besteman (review)
    • Abstract: Making Refuge explores the question of how people whose entire way of life has been destroyed construct a new future for themselves. In this beautifully written book, Catherine Besteman argues that in the process of trying to rebuild life, refugees and those who host them transform each other. She shows how refugees and their hosts are affected by the slow border crossings of all kinds that accompany human mobility. The book is highly relevant at a time when the hosting of refugees is debated extensively across the world. The renewed interest in the hosting of refugees has been sparked by the fact that Europe, the continent whose historical events led to the adoption of the 1951 Refugee Convention, is facing ...

  • The Geographies of Social Movements: Afro-Colombian Mobilization and the
           Aquatic Space by Ulrich Oslender (review)
    • Abstract: The Geographies of Social Movements is an ambitious project that seeks to use ethnography to bridge political and cultural geography with social movements studies. More specifically, Ulrich Oslender deploys "a critical place perspective" (17) and rich ethnographic fieldwork to analyze the social movement(s) of black communities in Colombia's Pacific Coast region. For Oslender, this means focusing first on the situated cultural, physical, and social fabric of everyday life in these communities, before then tracing the diverse ways that these everyday realities get translated into social movement discourse, practice, and ideals. As a geographer, Oslender's emphasis is on understanding the ways that black communities ... Read More

  • Rights After Wrongs: Local Knowledge and Human Rights in Zimbabwe by
           Shannon Morreira (review)
    • Abstract: In 2008, images of beaten bodies and reports of extreme political violence began emanating from Zimbabwe. These were the effects of an election race between incumbent President Robert Mugabe and the leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change-Tsvangirai (MDC-T), Morgan Tsvangirai. While Tsvangirai ostensibly won the first round of elections in May 2008, he did not pass the 50 percent majority required for him to become president. A run-off election was held from which Tsvangirai withdrew, citing life-threatening persecution of his supporters. Mugabe—as the only contender—won the run-off. The MDC claimed that 200 of its members had been killed over the course of the election and its aftermath, while ... Read More

  • Regulating Romance: Youth Love Letters, Moral Anxiety, and Intervention in
           Uganda's Time of AIDS by Shanti Parikh (review)
    • Abstract: Shanti Parikh's Regulating Romance offers a compassionate, clear-eyed, and scrupulously researched examination of youth romance in Uganda. With great ethnographic richness, Parikh analyzes the fraught dynamics of morality, desire, and aspiration in "a time of AIDS," a moment when HIV/AIDS has become a profoundly intimate and social fact for most Ugandans. With considerable care, Parikh historically contextualizes her ethnographic investigations; her book situates contemporary anxieties about youth romance within longer-term transformations that have reshaped the ways that Ugandans experience kinship, love, bodies, and well-being.Regulating Romance is notable for being grounded in research that is both extensive ...
