Short Abstract:
This pan­el brings togeth­er anthro­pol­o­gists study­ing tem­po­ral, spa­tial and rela­tion­al dimen­sions of care tra­jec­to­ries. It invites empir­i­cal and con­cep­tu­al explo­rations that are based on ethno­graph­ic research on care for peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing life-lim­it­ing illness.

Long Abstract:
This pan­el aims to bring togeth­er anthro­pol­o­gists study­ing tem­po­ral, spa­tial and rela­tion­al dimen­sions of care tra­jec­to­ries of peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing life-lim­it­ing ill­ness. The bur­geon­ing anthro­po­log­i­cal lit­er­a­ture on care con­cep­tu­al­izes care­giv­ing across insti­tu­tion­al and non-insti­tu­tion­al bound­aries and as both a form of labour and an affec­tive force (e.g. Buch 2018, Strong 2020, McK­ear­ney and Amrith 2021) and high­lights the embod­i­ment of care (Auli­no 2016; Jack­son 2021) as well as a resis­tance against total­iz­ing con­cep­tu­al­iza­tions (Cubel­lis 2020; Steven­son 2020). Invit­ing empir­i­cal and con­cep­tu­al explo­rations of care tra­jec­to­ries, we seek to high­light tem­po­ral, spa­tial and rela­tion­al move­ments of care prac­tices (cf. Solomon 2022), par­tic­u­lar­ly for and by peo­ple affect­ed by life-lim­it­ing illness.
In a con­text of chang­ing wel­fare states and increas­ing glob­al imple­men­ta­tions of forms of Uni­ver­sal Health Cov­er­age, we ask: How do care rela­tions and care needs change dur­ing ill­ness tra­jec­to­ries? How do care­givers and patients move across bor­ders and insti­tu­tions to pro­vide and access care? What expec­ta­tions do they have of care tra­jec­to­ries and what alter­na­tive tra­jec­to­ries do they envi­sion? And how may ethno­graph­ic research on care tra­jec­to­ries lay bare the inter­sec­tion­al inequal­i­ties that shape people’s pos­si­bil­i­ties to give and access care over time? We invite pan­el con­trib­u­tors to unpack the con­cept of care tra­jec­to­ries based on ethno­graph­ic research, and to con­tribute to ongo­ing dis­cus­sions on the con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion of care.
