If race is a social construct, how can it have such clear
effects on things like health outcomes? In this dialogue we introduce the idea
of the “Bio-Cultural”, a way Anthropologists think about how social phenomena
like race affect our bodies. Race is not biological, but it nonetheless impacts
bodies in unequal ways, sometimes with multi-generational consequences. The
Bio-Cultural helps us to make sense of this process without inadvertently
falling back on a biological model of race.
