Integrating collaborative, ethnographically-informed qualitative research in HIV experimental science: A CSSR Seminar with Dr Lindsey Reynolds and co-Authors: Lindsey Reynolds, Graeme Hoddinott, Lario Viljoen, Janet Seeley and Ginny Bond
31 Aug 2018 - 15:00
Lindsey Reynolds is an interdisciplinary researcher, working at the boundaries of anthropology and public health. She completed a joint doctoral degree in anthropology and public health at Johns Hopkins University in 2013. She is currently working as Social Science Advisor for the HPTN071 (PopART) trial at Desmond Tutu TB Centre. She is
a honourary research associate of the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Stellenbosch and a Visiting Scholar in the Population Studies and Training Centre at Brown University.
Drawing on insights from a decade of work on global health, humanitarian intervention, and the lives of young people and families in South Africa, Reynolds's research interrogates tensions inherent in processes of social reproduction and social change in the context of global health research and intervention. Her current research explores the constructions of categories of population, community, kin, and family in two sites of long-term biomedical research, extraction, and intervention in South Africa. More broadly, her work explores the methodological, epistemological and political possibilities and challenges that emerge from multi-sited and critical engagements between global health systems, development programs, and the social sciences.
Seminar will take place on Tuesday September 4 at 12:50 pm in the Centre for Social Science Research Seminar Room, 4.29, Leslie Social Science Building.
