Biography

Gergely MOHÁCSI is an assistant professor at Osaka University in the School of Human Sciences. He is a medical anthropologist with special interest in science and technology studies and comparative ethnography. His research has focused on the embodied entanglements of technoscience and medicine in contemporary Japan, most notably in the domain of diabetes self-care. He conducted fieldwork in hospitals, laboratories and patient groups in Japan and Hungary. Currently, he is investigating the co-constitution of things and values in the development and use of herbal medications in Japan and East Asia. By highlighting the entanglement of different medical traditions in the process of producing new medications, he aims to explore the new possibilities and challenges of what he calls “ethnographic comparison.”
