Presentation

In this issue, we focus on end-of-life trajectories and contemporary dying, marked by a plurality of ways of conceiving the world, life, death, the contribution of biomedical technology, and the expectations and possibilities regarding the places where dying is possible (hospital, long-term care or palliative care institution, home).

The papers selected for this call will address death and the end of life from different angles, taking into account the perspectives of people at the end of life, their families and caregivers, including the end-of-life experiences from youth to old age, the diversity of ends of life (local, transnational, social ties), subjectivities, intersubjectivities, norms and values (good death, suffering, unveiling, etc.) and the organisation of care and care practices.

Submission Guidelines

Anthropologie et sociétés is published in French. Papers are welcome in both French and English although the latter will be translated by the journal after the review process.
