What roles do antibiotics play in society?
The Antimicrobials in Society (AMIS) programme aims to promote fresh perspectives from social research on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This seminar will focus on our ethnographic research in Thailand and Uganda, where we have been exploring the ways antibiotics are used in humans, animals and crops, and the reasons behind increasing use. In this unique seminar, the audience will have the opportunity to hear snapshots from 12 field sites, introducing the social, economic and political reasons for increasing antibiotic use, along with insights into the science and policy of antibiotic use and AMR globally and locally.
The audience will be invited to pose questions for discussion and to consider the value of ethnographic research in prompting new insights for addressing AMR.
This session will be live-streamed and recorded - accessible to both internal and external audience.
Please note that the ramp at our main entrance of our Keppel Street building will close from Saturday 5 October until Monday 18 November for essential repairs. An alternative accessible route for visitors with a disability and wheelchair users will be provided on Malet Street. There will be signage to guide you to this entrance.
