This talk centres its focus on the lived realities of non-human objects and agents involved in the experience of being ill. With Professor Patrick Anderson

Speaker: Professor Patrick Anderson

Inspired by recent work in performance studies and related fields, this talk centres its focus on the lived realities of non-human objects and agents involved in the experience of being ill. This orientation is intended to represent the distribution of perspectives on illness, disability, and pain across subjective centres – from patient to monitoring machine, from body to cell, from caregiver to cared-for – and thus makes sense of illness only in a social context.
