About Georgia Davis
After 12 years in journalism as a documentary producer, network radio bureau chief, political reporter, and public television news director, I joined the School of Geography and Development to pursue a PhD in medical geography.
My current scholarly work pulls from health geography, medical anthropology and communications studies to examine norms within changing science and society relationships, with a specific focus on ongoing debates about Lyme disease.
My previous work examined the way culture and perception are co-constitutive; using dance as an entry point for studying lingering colonial relations of power embedded within emerging artistic pratices.
