Near Death: Trauma, Mortality, and Urban Space in India

This talk examines what kinds of social, political, and ethical tensions emerge in the face of traumatic injury. It is based on ethnographic research on traffic accidents in Mumbai, India, much of it conducted inside a public municipal hospital emergency department and trauma ward. The talk details movements between the trauma ward and the mortuary. It argues that contact points between the living and the dead demonstrate how trauma distributes, and more generally illustrate the complex relations between injury, mortality, and urban space.

Mirrors and Mirror Neurons:
A Reflection on the Importance of Compassion in Healing


Medieval medicine and literature imagined lovesickness as a disease which could most directly be cured, literally, by empathy. The sick lover’s pain is most effectively assuaged when the object of his desires sees his suffering, takes pity on him, and reciprocates his amorous feelings. One of the primary metaphors of love in this medieval context is that of a mirror—the same metaphor by which we describe the neurons that help us forge social and emotional connections. Taking John Gower’s 14th century Confessio Amantis (Lover’s Confession) as its base text, this talk will consider the metaphor of the mirror, the lady’s empathy, and the modern understanding of mirror neurons while asking how medicine can better practice empathetic healing.
