You are cordially invited to attend the next talk in the online webinar series Unfolding Finitudes: Current Ethnographies of Aging, Dying and End-of-Life Care on December 7, 2021 15.30–17.00 CET.
Enduring Cancer: Life, Death and Diagnosis in Delhi is an ethnography of cancer in India. Enduring Cancer presents the efforts of the urban poor in Delhi to carve out a livable life with cancer, as they negotiate an over-extended health system struggling to respond to the disease. Through ethnographic fieldwork, archival research and analyses of cultural texts, Dwaipayan Banerjee describes how cancer shapes and is shaped by such local social worlds.
Dwaipayan Banerjee is an Associate Professor of Science, Technology, and Society (STS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has a doctorate in cultural anthropology at NYU and has been a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Dartmouth College. He also holds an M.Phil and an MA in sociology from the Delhi School of Economics.
About Unfolding Finitudes
The European Research Council-funded Globalizing Palliative Care project at Leiden University is hosting a three-monthly webinar series that highlights current anthropological research on care, aging and dying. During this series, invited speakers present their recent or ongoing ethnographic work in this field. Our aim is to create a platform for discussion of novel anthropological perspectives on unfolding finitudes at the end of life.
We hope to see you in the webinar!
