 bose Dr Kaushik Bose is Head of the Department of Anthropology at Vidyasagar University, West Bengal, India. His work has focussed on chronic disease risk among South Asians, initially in the United Kingdom and subsequently in his native West Bengal. He has researched obesity in India since 2001, showing that it is of increasing concern not only for the urban middle classes, but also for some rural populations.
 carusi Dr Annamaria Carusi is Associate Professor in Medical Science and Technology at the University of Copenhagen. Carusi also holds the position of Professor II across the Departments of Philosophy and Art and Media Studies at NTNU.
