Diane Nelson

Eads Family Professor of Cultural Anthropology (2011 - 2016)

Professor Diane Nelson began fieldwork in Guatemala in 1985, exploring the impact of civil war on highland indigenous communities. From then, her interests have developed to the realms of cultural studies and cyborg anthropology. Her new project explores science and technology development in Guatemala and Latin America with a focus on research on vector and blood-borne diseases and the intersection of this research with health care and neo-liberal reforms.
