The body as a gift, resource and commodity: Organ transplantation in the Baltic and East Europe region

Project: Research

Layman's description

The aim of the project is to examine a medical technology in rapid change: organ transplantation. The ambition is to find explanations by the application of cultural studies and to find philosophical normative arguments. The project is launched from three metaphors – the body as a gift, resource and commodity – in which the relation between person and body is at stake and is constituted.
