Peter Locke, Global Health Studies and Anthropology, is a cultural and medical anthropologist focused on bringing ethnographic evidence to the comparative study of global health and humanitarian intervention in post-conflict societies. Locke’s doctoral research in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, explored how local psychosocial support organizations and poor families together cope with the legacy of war amidst a transformed state and economy. Prior to joining Northwestern’s faculty, Locke served as a postdoctoral research associate and then as a lecturer for Princeton University’s Program in Global Health and Health Policy.
