The University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita is hosting a talk for its Sawyer Seminar on the evening of February 19, 2020.
Dr. de-Graft Aikins is a British Academy Global Professor at the Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London. Her research focuses on chronic illness representations, experiences and care, and on the social, cultural and health systems aspects of Africa’s chronic non-communicable disease (NCD) burden. She also has a strong interest in the history of psychology in Africa and its intersections with critical theory and African Studies.
Drawing on social psychological analysis of mixed qualitative data, Dr. de-Graft Aikins will discuss chronicity and care within Ghanaian communities in London, Amsterdam and Berlin. Her research illuminates how place, migration history, and generational status shape and nuance meanings, relationships, practices, and material realities at community, individual, and ideological levels.
