About me

  • I teach medical anthropology, transcultural care, public health and research
    methods at the department of nursing at Karolinska Institutet. I have a Ph.D.
    in anthropology from the University of Chicago (1997). I have written a book,
    Feeding Desire: Fatness, Beauty and Sexuality among a Saharan People
    (Routledge, 2004) based on fieldwork in Niger, and co-authored numerous
    articles on culture and health. Recently I have published, along with
    co-authors, an article aimed at helping students and their supervisors assess
    and summarize the results of scientific studies in general literature
    reviews, /Popenoe, Rebecca &
