Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a public health threat which poses serious challenges to countries and regions. From invention to manufacturing, procurement, and the use and misuse of antibiotics, there are discernible historical underpinnings of international trends in antibiotics and AMR which are influenced by an array of well-known medical drivers and lesser-known socio-politico-cultural ones. This seminar will explore the diverse impact of AMR in South Asia, and consider the value of a critical discourse on historiographical mapping and policy analysis.
