Bruno Silva Santos wins major Wellcome PhD Studentship

28 September 2021

Bruno Silva Santos has won a major Wellcome Trust PhD Studentship for an ethnography of humans, rats and micro-organisms in Guarani-Mbya villages of Jaraguá Indigenous Land, São Paulo, Brazil. Examining the relation between humans, rats and leptospirosis, the PhD project will focus on the examination of Guarani- Mbya perceptions of and practices around rodent-borne infection with an aim of unsettling the colonial vestiges of epidemiological reasoning that continues to inform understandings of zoonosis.
