Technologies of Death and Dying at the Beginning of Life

TechnoDeath will set a new research agenda contributing to reproductive and death studies with new humanities perspectives. It also aims to develop ethnographically sensitive reconceptualizations of the emergence, management, and the experience of living with death and dying at the beginning of life when technologies are used. Finally, by communicating our findings to health practitioners, we aim to make a difference for those experiencing the loss of an infant or the termination of a pregnancy.

In TechnoDeath our main research question asks: How do technologies remake death and dying at the beginning of life?
