Society of Scholars
The Society of Scholars is an intellectual community of humanists of diverse generations, academic ranks, and departmental affiliations who contribute to and learn from one another’s work. Each year, approximately eight faculty and three dissertation research fellowships support members of the Society of Scholars. Scholars in year-long residence at the University of Washington may be invited to participate as well. The group meets biweekly throughout the year to discuss their research in progress.

Fixing the Image: Medical Imaging in Phnom Penh
Fixing the Image examines recent accounts of technology, images, and medicine by way of a detailed ethnography of medical imaging in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Playing with multiple senses of the term ‘fix’, it explores practices of (self)definition, care, and repair of health, health systems, and the nation. The tempo of techno-modernity, the abrupt making present and absent of technologies in Cambodia, is significant for how imaging services have been taken up unevenly and with ardor.
