The University of Chicago

I seek to understand the political economy of the contemporary life sciences and biomedicine, with a primary empirical focus on the United States and India. My focus has been to open up conceptual questions concerning the complex relationships between knowledge, health, value and politics. My recent book Pharmocracy: Value, Politics and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine, elucidates the political economy of global pharmaceuticals as seen from contemporary India. My most ambitious pedagogical commitments have focused on the development of an ethnographic methods curriculum for graduate students. Contact Information Selected Publications 2012 (Ed.)

Founding Director, CENHS Professor, Department of Anthropology Dr. Dominic Boyer has done extensive anthropological research on the practice of news journalism in Germany and the United States and has published widely on the relationship between media and knowledge in modern society. In recent research, he has shown how over the past thirty years the rise of new digital information technology combined with the spread of neoliberal policy regimes to profoundly unsettle broadcast-era patterns of newsmaking and news circulation, thus forcing news journalists to reinvent their expertise and authority. In his current work, Boyer examines the contribution of energy systems to modern political culture. Eric Wolf.
