- Anatomy of the Australopithecus scapula and evolution of the human shoulder : insights from a new fossil specimen, KSD-VP-1/1g2011Stephanie Marie Melillo.Striding bipedalism is a mode of locomotion that defines our lineage. Bipedality freed the hands, arms and shoulders from the mechanical constraints of locomotion, an evolutionary innovation that has had an obvious impact on our species' fitness. As I will discuss in this dissertation, the shoulder blade (scapula) is shaped to optimize use of the upper limb in certain positions. Our closest living relatives (chimpanzees and gorillas) possess adaptations that likely increase efficiency in overhead use of the arms, as in forearm suspension or vertical climbing. The modern human shoulder, on the other hand, lacks such adaptations. This difference may reflect an evolutionary change in shape that occurred as our ancestors transitioned to a terrestrial way of life and became increasingly dexterous, eventually losing ancestral adaptations. On the other hand, recent discoveries suggest our lineage may have never possessed adaptations to suspension. Fossils from the shoulder of our early human ancestors are scarce. A recently discovered partial skeleton from Woranso-Mille (Afar Depression, Ethiopia), KSD-VP-1/1, preserves the oldest and most complete scapula of an adult Australopithecus afarensis individual. The intended contribution of this dissertation is to provide a comparative description of the new scapula (KSD-VP-1/1g) and to detail its implications for our understanding of anatomy and adaptation in the Australopithecus shoulder, and the evolutionary history of the modern human shoulder more generally.

- 2010Ramah McKay.Based on twenty-four months of fieldwork, this dissertation explores how welfare -- the provision of social goods and supports -- is being configured through transnational medical intervention and public health policy in Mozambique. My research was concerned with how a variety of techniques, diagnoses, and criteria were used to mediate families' access to care and social supports as well as with the kinds of social and material opportunities these interventions made available. In a context marked by material scarcity far beyond the well-defined clinical criteria through which medical welfare supports were channeled, I was interested in how a variety of differently situated actors -- including health planners, donors, psychologists, counselors, and nurses, members of patients associations, volunteers, family members and patients -- defined, diagnosed, and accessed welfare needs. I also aimed to trace how legal and ethical norms structured and emerged out of these new welfare assemblages, and asked why and how contested, gendered family relationships came to be a privileged locus for these medical-social interventions. I investigated how planners, workers, patients and families negotiated institutional and everyday practices of care in order to understand how new modes of diagnosis, treatment, care, and social support for children and patients are taken up across a range of institutional and non-institutional sites. Based on this research, I argue that medical welfare interventions instantiate a new mode of governance in Mozambique, one in which the state not only provides services but also (even primarily) coordinates non-governmental endeavors and constitutes individuals and communities as available for humanitarian intervention. As a result, new forms of claims-making and claims-denying, including and beyond citizenship claims, are emerging in medical welfare spaces, as diagnoses of individual and community "vulnerability" become means of mobilizing new forms of care and material resources. Crucially, I suggest, these dynamics are shaped not only by contemporary development practice but also by historical legacies of colonialism, conflict and intervention that have shaped the politics of biomedical knowledge and transnational aid in contemporary Mozambique.
