Tamara-Giles Vernick of Institut Pasteur discusses her field research in central Africa, which investigates human-nonhuman primate engagements over time and their implications for zoonotic disease transmission. Her talk will illustrate problems with certain assumptions embedded in a biomedical literature on human-animal contact and zoonotic disease emergence. She describes the contributions that historical-anthropological research can bring to pre-histories of emergence and presents preliminary analysis of the evidence of changing human-nonhuman primate engagements.
A Q&A and discussion will take place after the presentation. Light refreshments will be served.
Free and open to the public.
The full title of the lecture is: "A Pre-History of Zoonotic Disease Outbreaks: An Historical-Ethnographic Reconsideration of Human-Animal "Contact" in Central Africa."
This event is part ofd the Anthropology Roundtable Symposium.
