Double Panels 4 & 5: Death and Dying from the Region of the Feminine

This double panel asks how anthropological knowledge can be constituted from the region of the feminine. In particular, the scholars on this panel take the experience of death and dying as a site from which to consider how the feminine region – the attention to detail and minor figures – allows for indeterminacy within knowledge and helps us rethink politics, justice, and care.
