IAS faculty member Lauren Berliner co-led a symposium with Nora Kenworthy (NHS) on “Crowdsourcing Care: Health, Debility and Dying in a Digital Age” as part of their Simpson Center for the Humanities Collaborative Studio grant. The half-day symposium explored how participatory media intersects with experiences of health, illness, care, debility, and dying to produce new subjectivities, modes of participation, narratives, and social forms. Speakers included Kalindi Vora, Janelle Taylor, Brian Goldfarb, Gina Neff, Sasha Su-Ling Welland, Jose Alaniz, and Christof Hannsmann. A description and program can be found here: https://simpsoncenter.org/calendar?trumbaEmbed=view%3Devent&eventid=117518426
