Eye on Africa: Cal Biruk
About the Talk: more information...
This talk is based on my recently published book, "Cooking Data: Culture and Politics in an African Research World." Drawing on long term ethnography with demographic survey research projects in rural Malawi, the book tells the life story of quantitative health data, tracking and analyzing their transformation from pencil marks recorded on a survey page into statistics consumed by policy makers, researchers and the public.
