Mitra Emad, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2009

Mitra C. Emad (Sociology & Anthropology, College of Liberal Arts, UM-Duluth): “Reaching the Body: Birth and Death as Sites for Knowledge-in-Action in Health Care Professionalization”

Emad completed the final draft of her book Twirling the Needle: the Body as a Site for Cultural Translation in American Encounters with Acupuncture (forthcoming from SUNY Press). She also wrote a new paper and made a conference presentation. Though the IAS, she was able to connect with the Embodied Methodologies collaborative and other scholars engaged in the University Symposium on Body & Knowing; through the Symposium she met Professor Amy Sheldon (Communication Studies) with whom she is currently developing a coauthored paper. These connections and interactions with other fellows were immensely productive for her work. She is exploring team-teaching a course with Karen-Sue Taussig, which would have two sites, one on the Duluth and one on the Twin Cities campuses.
