Research

Emily Yates-Doerr (Ph.D. 2011, Anthropology, NYU) is a Postdoc in Annemarie Mol's team. Her research focuses on how public health, agricultural, and economic interests converge over concerns for hunger, climate change, food prices, and metabolic transitions. This work attends to collisions between global and Indigenous politics; the practice of translating between research and policy in the food sciences; and methodological tensions in 'engaged anthropology.'

The postdoctoral project has grown out of doctoral research on dietary transitions in Latin America. Her manuscript-in-progress, The Weight of the Body, studies the emergence of the diagnostic category of obesity while considering the circulation of ideas about nutritional health, fitness, and body weight ideals in the highland Guatemalan community of Xela. Before coming to the University of Amsterdam, she was in the Anthropology department at New York University.
