The Peopling of Technologies
This chapter uses a series of orientations to make connections among the case studies in this book, as well as the author's own ethnographic research interviewing life scientists in India and the United States and doing ethnographic fieldwork in Singapore's Biopolis, to suggest how they may provide analytic insights into these epistemic shifts. The series of orientations are: mobile phone analogies (as an image or metaphor of cheap, ubiquitous, and mobile high-tech genomics that saves lives, helps stop pandemics, and promises more personalized therapies); translational research (to make new biomedical knowledge therapeutically available); shifts in moral culture and repairing the legacies of structural adjustment (the political economy of public health); forward-looking values (entering into dialogue to build civil society foundations for public health); and repetitions (as new entry points).
