Lydia Maria Arantes, Mag. Dr. phil., is interested in (textile) craft practices, material culture, anthropology of numbers, STS, sensory ethnography, ethno-psychoanalysis and reflexive ethnography. In her latest book she carves out sensory, material, mathematical, social, historical, economic and gender dimensions of contemporary knitting. Her next project will deal with the textile industry in western Austria, where she aims at looking into negotiations / reconciliations of digitisation and sustainability as well as emerging (practices of) knowledge in a rapidly changing field (of production).

Post-doctoral fellow University of HaifaDepartment of Anthropology

Yael Assor is an anthropologist who studies how culturally-dependent moral views shape healthcare policy-making procedures. Assor gained her Ph.D. at UCLA’s Department of Anthropology, where she studied how an ideal of “objectivity” as ethically appropriate conduct shapes the decisions made at the Israeli Public Committee for the Enhancement of the Medical Services Basket (known in Israel as Va’adat Sal Hatrufot). Currently, Assor is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Haifa’s Department of Anthropology, where she develops her new research on the ethical assumptions underlying the notion of “medical effectiveness” in cost-effectiveness analysis. Assor’s studies have appeared in leading anthropological and bioethical journals.
