Critical Commentary

Traces of the Future is an archive in print or, as its subtitle puts it, "an archaeology of medical science in Africa.  This artifact does not represent it, or otherwise make it accessible -- indeed, despite its brilliant achievements, this is one of its limitations, limits that also make for its brilliant achievements -- but is instead a site to archive annotations of the book and its project.
