This past July, the members of the Hybrid Bodies team gathered in Toronto to kick off Hybrid Bodies II. While Hybrid Bodies I dealt with the psychological and ontological effects of heart transplantation from the perspective of the organ recipients, Hybrid Bodies II approaches the issue of transplantation from the perspective of the donor families.
At our first meeting, we viewed the first cohort of video interviews with donor families gathered by the PITH team as part of their ongoing qualitative research into the effects of transplantation. We also charted the course of phase two of the project, which will span the next five years. Upcoming exhibitions, publications, conferences, and other news and noteworthy events will be posted here.
