Past Event

Imagining Self and Other: Carers, TV, and Touch

About the Speaker

Dr Harmandeep Gill, Junior Research Fellow, Oriental Institute, Oxford

Dr Gill's work is based among the Tibetan exile community in India. She has done fieldwork on and written about the Tibetan self-immolations, the Tibetan freedom struggle in exile, and most recently about aging and dying among elderly exile Tibetans. She attempts to write intimate portraits that move between the personal and the social, the lived and the possible, and the real and the imagined. She is drawn to the intangible and unresolved aspects of experience. She takes inspiration from existential approaches in anthropology, socially and politically engaged scholarship, experimental forms of writing, and photography.
