Dr. Johanna Crane: “The Indirect Costs of Global Health: African Universities and Invisible Labor in Transnational Science
.”

Dr. Crane is assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Washington-Bothell. She received her Ph.D. in Medical Anthropology from the University of California, Berkley. Her research brings together history, science, technological studies, medical humanities, bioethics, and global health. Her book Scrambling for Africa: AIDS, Expertise, and the Rise of American Global Health Science examines the changing U.S. response to the AIDS epidemic in Africa. With a focus on Uganda, Crane’s research shows how, in less than a decade, Africa went from being a continent largely excluded from American advancements in HIV/AIDS medicine to an area of central concern in the transnational production of medical knowledge, research money, and pharmaceutical profiteering. In the future, she plans to continue to study the politics of global health science, as well as return to questions of medicine and power in the U.S. through researching the field of prison medicine.
