“Betwixt and Between: Studying up American Medicine”

Katharina Rynkiewich, a postdoctoral scholar in CWRU’s Department of Anthropology, will present “Betwixt and Between: Studying up American Medicine” Thursday, Sept. 17, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Rynkiewich is a sociocultural medical anthropologist with research interests in antimicrobial prescribing and infectious disease practice in the United States. Her current research focuses on practices of infection control and antimicrobial stewardship within regional networks of care, including perceptions and understandings of germs and infection control among health care workers.

In this talk, Rynkiewich will draw on her experience working in and around American medical settings to share methods and challenges associated with hospital-based ethnographic research.

Rynkiewich’s lecture is free and open to the public.
