Sociology Open Research Event: Time and The Body: Stories From the Diasporic Deathbed

In this fascinating contribution to our Open Research Talk series, Dr Yasmin Gunaratnam (Sociology, Goldsmiths) draws on narrative and ethnographic research with migrants and refugees who have settled in Britain and are facing the end of their lives. With the help of ideas from postcolonial, feminist, palliative care, crip theory and neuroscience research, she argues that pain at the end of life for some migrants and refugees is not easily locatable within chrononormative time frames. She draws upon examples from her British Academy funded ‘Case Stories’ project on social pain and transnational dying in the UK. The project used stories, poems and visual images to encourage dialogue with care practitioners and diverse audiences.
