This month’s speaker in our Far Away Places series is University of Kentucky Anthropologist Erin Koch.

A native of Venice, California where her family have lived since the 1960’s, she attended the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her early interests were in feminism, Marxism and the social studies of science. After graduating with a degree in Anthropology, she enrolled in the graduate program at the New School for Social Research from where she received her PhD in 2005 for her research on tuberculosis and health care reforms in post-Soviet Georgia. Her interest in the Republic of Georgia dates from 1995 and she has visited the country almost yearly since 2000.
