When Obama Visited Kenya: (In)Securities and Graduated Sovereignty in Nairobi
Denielle Elliott is a cultural anthropologist who teaches on postcolonial and indigenous science studies, the anthropology of biomedicine, and social suffering in the Department of Social Science at York University in Toronto. Her projects are driven by a commitment to politically engaged scholarship that creatively and imaginatively explore the subtleties, angsts, and abrupt violences of power in ‘good intentioned’ interventions, including global health and humanitarian aid, in East Africa and Canada. She is the co-editor of A Different Kind of Ethnography: Imaginative Practices and Creative Methodologies (2016, UTP).
