Richard Eves

Richard Eves is an anthropologist who has published widely on issues of social change in Papua New Guinea. He is currently a Senior Fellow at State Society and Governance in Melanesia at The Australian National University. In 2008, with Leslie Butt, he co-edited the ground-breaking volume Making Sense of AIDS: Culture, Sexuality, and Power in Melanesia (2008), a collection of anthropological papers on how the epidemic is being understood and responded to in Melanesia. Most of his recent work deals with contemporary issues in Melanesia, straddling the boundaries between anthropology, development and international health, with a particular focus on gender, violence and the AIDS epidemic.
