He draws on the influence texting has had here, and where this is heading. In this fascinating episode we learn about the way he is comparing ancient Indian linguistic tradition to modern western linguistic tradition, and the human knowledge that can be derived from this.

    Prof. Adia Benton is a cultural anthropologist whose research focuses on global health, biomedicine and development/humanitarianism. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Northwestern University. In this inspiring episode of The Know Show Podcast, she discusses her incredible research that touches on the often unintended consequences of global health and humanitarianism, with a particular focus on epidemics and West Africa. She talks to Hussain about her work within this that includes looking at race and humanitarian professionals, security and military paradigms during epidemics, hierarchies within this practice, and temporality in an era of anti-retroviral therapies for HIV/AIDS. Her studies are informed by her previous career in the fields of global health and post-conflict development in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. We are given a rare and critical analysis of humanitarianism and development today that is built on this first hand experience through an anthropological lens.

Better than digging through research papers

The show breaks down some of the amazing work researchers do that we never get to see. Instead of being buried in archives it’s now on here. Loved it.
