The Anthro-Zoonoses Network hosted a two-day workshop on the ethnography of emerging diseases from 17th to 18th September 2015 at Durham University. The workshop was organised by Hannah Brown, Durham University and Ann Kelly, University of Exeter.
On 17th September, Hannah Brown welcomed the participants and introduced them to the workshop’s topic around “emergence”.
The first panel on “control” included presentations by Christos Lynteris, University of Cambridge and Alex Nading, University of Edinburgh. Discussant of this panel was Bob Simpson, Durham University. The panel was followed by a session on “ecologies” with presentations by Tamara Giles-Vernick, Institut Pasteur and Stephanie Rupp, City University of New York, Lehman College and Dalia Iskander, Durham University.

The panel session was followed by a public round table event on 'The One Health agenda: An 'emerging' global health paradigm" with Steve Lindsay (Durham University), Sue Welburn (University of Edinburgh) and Rashid Ansumana (Njala University). Ann Kelly chaired the round table event.
The 18th September started with a presentation about the planned website for the “Anthro-Zoonoses Network” by Andrea Kaiser-Grolimund and Hannah Brown, followed by a discussion.
