Traces of the Future (2016) combines anthropology, history, the fine arts, and archaeology to take readers “on a journey through the ruins, traces and past futures of medical science in Africa – shedding new light on the post-colonial past and African present.” Forum invites you to join a discussion of this book and its implications for research - theoretically, methodologically, and with regards to communicating research results to different audiences.
