Alice Larotonda

Area of interest: My dissertation research looks at breastmilk donation in Praia, Cabo Verde, analyzing the gendered logics of transnational clinical interventions and South-South development projects. I am interested in studying how concepts of the "common good" are elaborated through acts of generosity and human solidarity.

Keywords: Medical anthropology; kinship; gender; breastfeeding; breastmilk banking; reproduction; reproductive health; development; citizenship; common good; Cabo Verde; Black Lusophone Atlantic.

Status: In the field
