About

Anita Schroven studied Social and Political Anthropology at the Universities of Göttingen and Sussex and received her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology. During this time, she conducted ethnographic fieldwork on international interventions in Sierra Leone and Liberia and researched changing state-society relations during political reform processes in Guinea.

She coordinated the research group “Cultural Constitution of Causal Cognition” at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University where she explored the relevance of cultural differences in diagnosis and healing.
Anita Schroven is researching the effects of the Ebola outbreak on West African societies at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, and the biomedical aspects of the international Ebola intervention at Institut Pasteur.
