The Department welcomes Ramah McKay as our new assistant professor. 

Ramah McKay studies the transnational politics of health in southern Africa. Her current research asks how global health interventions transform and build upon long-standing development practices in Mozambique.  Her ongoing research extends this focus to ask how emergent and longstanding Lusophone and Indian Ocean circuits, including Brazilian and Indian investments and actors, are reshaping possibilities for health, medicine, and livelihood in southern Africa. She received her PhD in Anthropology from Stanford University.

Dr. McKay joins us from the University of Minnesota and will begin teaching in the spring of 2016.
