Research project

Absent presences. An ethnographic study of the uncounted lives of people infected by leprosy in Latin America

Based on multi-sited ethnographic research in specific settings of Brazil and Colombia, my research explores the ontological politics of leprosy elimination. In particular, it examines the infrastructures, practices and modes of production of statistical data, central to evidence-making processes of the global epidemiological reality of leprosy. By doing so, this project calls attention to the uncounted effects of enumeration on peoples’ lives and political agendas.
