Megan A. Carney
As a medical and sociocultural anthropologist, Megan Carney examines the connections of im/migration and health, both broadly conceptualized. Areas of specific health focus in Dr. Carney’s research include health vulnerability and social inequality, health care access and utilization, mental health, immigrant detention, and food insecurity.
She conducts fieldwork with Latin American im/migrants and health-serving organizations in the United States and with migrants and asylum-seekers (primarily of African descent) in Italy. Her first book The Unending Hunger: Tracing Women and Food Insecurity Across Borders (UC Press, 2015) won the CHOICE award.
