Surface Tensions: Surgery, Bodily Boundaries, and the Social Self

Surface Tensions: Surgery, Bodily Boundaries, and the Social Self

Surface Tensions is an expansive, yet intimate study of how people remake themselves after catastrophic bodily change?the loss of limbs, the loss of function, the loss or replacement of organs. Against a sweeping cultural backdrop of art, popular culture, and the history of science and medicine, Manderson uses narrative epistemology based on in-depth interviews with over 300 individuals to show how they re-establish the coherence of their bodies, identities, and biographies. In addition to offering important new insights into the care, rehabilitation, and rehabituation of post-trauma patients, Manderson’s work challenges conventional ideas about the nature of embodiment and is an important contribution to medical anthropology, disability studies, and cultural studies.
