Khiara Bridges, Professor of Law and Professor of Anthropology at Boston University, joins us for an in-depth discussion of her new book The Poverty of Privacy Rights. The book takes a highly critical look at how Medicaid recipients are treated and whether they are left with any (or any meaningful) privacy rights. Khiara’s unique combination of social science research and legal analysis builds on her prior work in Reproducing Racean ethnography of pregnancy and birth at a large New York City public hospital, which explored the role of race in the medical setting. A contribution to anthropology, privacy law scholarship, and critical race theory, Bridges’ work should inform high level academic and policy debates about data collection, analysis, and use.
