Spy, Patrol, Police: Black Life and the Production of Epidemiological Knowledge from Atlanta, Georgia to Freetown, Sierra Leone

Adia Benton is a cultural and medical anthropologist and is currently an Associate Professor of Anthropology and African Studies at Northwestern University. She won the 2017 Rachel Carson Prize for her book HIV Exceptionalism: Development Through Disease in Sierra Leone from the Society for Social Studies of Science. Her talk, entitled "Spy, Patrol, Police: Black Life and the Production of Epidemiological Knowledge from Atlanta, Georgia to Freetown, Sierra Leone," considers the role of militarized police action during the West African Ebola outbreak and in the urban United States. This project explores the tensions in the fields of public health and medicine between the rhetoric and practices of safety and care and those of security and discipline.
