Research project

The uncounted lives of people affected by leprosy in Brazil

Drawing on ideas, concepts and discussions in medical anthropology, science and technology studies (STS), feminist science studies and STS applied to health, this project explores how visibility and invisibilities are created in the field of leprosy control throughout the process of classification and quantification. In particular, it examines the temporary, agreed-upon, nature of leprosy-elimination’s metrics and its long-term impact on people’s lives in Brazil. In short, this project reflects on the ontological politics of leprosy elimination.
