Making Antimicrobial Resistance Public

For over 25 years, public health experts have called for concerted action to raise awareness about the overuse of antibiotic agents leading to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the resulting increased difficulty managing life-threatening infections. AMR is now framed as analogous to climate change, with issues arising around resource use, technological solutions, global cooperation and potentially apocalyptic futures in the face of inaction. Raman will explore how social sciences and humanities might contribute to ways in which AMR is publicized through frameworks of apprehension, stewardship, and innovation, each of which opens up and closes down priorities for knowledge and action. AMR provides opportunities to consider development challenges, the social determinants of health, and ways to engage with a degrading and system-wide technology that might stimulate new connections around responsible innovation, the politics of life and the governance of global environmental change.
