Adriana Petryna is the co-editor of a new book titled When People Come First: Critical Studies in Global Health. The book critically assesses the expanding field of global health, bringing
together an international, interdisciplinary group of scholars to
address the medical, social, political, and economic dimensions of the
global health enterprise. It demonstrates the crucial role of ethnography, arguing for a more comprehensive,
people-centered approach, setting a new research agenda in global
health and social theory and challenging us to rethink the relationships
between care, rights, health, and economic futures. Read more on the website, or check out the flyer.
