Second Year Speaker Series, Anthropology Department:
Dr. Michelangelo Giampaoli is an anthropologist and cultural heritage curator. He will talk about how urban anthropology can help to analyze the development of informal and "unofficial" community health networks, understand how and why they work - knowledges, practices, operators - and contribute to their recognition and enhancement in communities and neighborhoods with limited access (or no access) to public and official health centers. He will also discuss the social importance, and power, of religion – or rather, of religions – in communities forgotten or abandoned by the state, using ethnographic examples from his work in Brazil and Italy.
