Biologies beyond the nature/nurture divide: Materializing absent kinships in Japanese child welfare

CAS Luncheon Series. This talk will be presented by Kathryn Goldfarb of Anthropology. This paper is based on ethnographic research in Japan and is part of a larger project that explores how “non-normative” kinship practices articulate with family ideologies. Here I suggest that the lived meanings of kinship and family are sometimes best understood by exploring the absence of locally meaningful kinship ties—absences that are often perceived and experienced in the body. April 21, noon, CAS Conference Room, 1424 Broadway. Lunch is provided.
