Dr Rebecca Lynch
Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health
University of Exeter
Dr Rebecca Lynch is an anthropologist with an interest in bodies and biomedicine, and how these are constructed and categorised in different contexts. Rebecca completed her
PhD in Social Anthropology at University College London (UCL) and is now a lecturer in medical anthropology in the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health where she leads the Lifecourse theme. Rebecca’s research explores the dynamic, changing, fluid body and its boundaries, moral aspects of health and medicine, and (bio)medical categorisations (including those created through notions of risk and health technologies). Her current fieldwork is in different settings in the UK, particularly within public health and in the care and management of chronic conditions.
Rebecca is co-investigator (leading the social science element) on two NIHR-funded projects, on caring for liver disease, and novel technologies to monitor asthma symptoms. She is co-editor of the 'Health, Technology and Society' book series with Prof. Martyn Pickersgill (published by Palgrave), and a member of the editorial board of Anthropology and Medicine.
