Ramah McKay
Graduate Dissertation Fellow 2009-10, Anthropology

Ramah McKay holds a BA in Anthropology from Barnard College and an MA in Cultural and Social Anthropology from Stanford University. Her dissertation is based on two years of multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Maputo City and Zambezia Province, Mozambique. Her research examined how transnational humanitarian and philanthropic medical interventions are producing and transforming possibilities for social welfare for women, children, and families in Mozambique. Her dissertation, Affective Interventions: Making Medical Welfare in Mozambique, asks how these emergent modes of intervention and support are constituted in and through discourses of raced and gendered social difference.
