Seminar: Anthropology Reckons with Covid-19: Diagnosis, Testing and Global Health, 27th November 2020

In this seminar we draw on our research into diagnostic testing during and after the West Africa Ebola outbreak, for Neglected Tropical Diseases, and for COVID-19, to sketch out possible directions for an anthropology of testing. Anthropological approaches to technology, medicine and society, we argue, prompt us to pose fundamental questions about who, and what, diagnostic tests are for.
