I am currently working on my manuscript, Politicosis: Tuberculosis, Public Health, and Politics in Cuba, 1925-1965. My second project will expand into the broader context of the Caribbean, demonstrating the importance of this region for ongoing "South-South" exchange in the making of medical knowledge, specifically for the (spatial) category of "tropical diseases."
