Abstract:A question I seek to answer in my dissertation is the sense in which development is experienced as a pathogen, and why critiques of development engage diagnoses and curing treatments. I argue that healing constitutes a way for indigenous people to regain control over history and agency in a situation of crisis, which pervades, as a virus, the human, social, and cosmic bodies.
