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.
