Communications

Celie completed a masters in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester before starting at The Know Show. Her dissertation critically analysed the intertwining of health and citizenship, looking at the unintended consequences of 'doing good'. She focussed on HIV/AIDS, due to the exceptional global health attention it receives. She critiqued the wider system in which this response is situated, having created a reality where HIV/AIDS is understood as a resource for some people. Celie grew up in North Wales, and misses the Welsh mountains which hold a special place in her heart!
