Anusandhan Trust's 10th Krishna Raj Memorial Lecture On Contemporary Issues in Health and Social Sciences
On 'Hospitals as Factories of Medical Garbage' in the series Contemporary Issues in Health and Social Sciences
In this lecture ?Dr Sarah Hodges will explore the use of disposables in the context of the long history of 20t? h?century sanitary science. ?The widespread adoption of single-use disposable medical plastics consolidated a century's worth of changes in medical hygiene. The initial uptake of medical plastics was not, surprisingly, driven primarily by concerns about hygiene but as a technology of convenience and durability. The new processional infrastructure of disposable single-use medical plastics, hygiene has produced another, albeit unintended, consequence, viz., the exponentially increasing hospitals' material outputs. Plastic has refigured the ecologies of everyday medicine. Dr Hodges is a scholar of ?socio- cultural history of modern South Asia, specifically the politics of health in colonial and postcolonial India.
