This module provides an insight into how the pre-occupations of late modern society shape perceptions and experience of cancer at the social, cultural and individual level. Key themes include: heightened perceptions of cancer risk and increasing surveillance, self-monitoring and self-regulation; cancer as an embodied experience and a challenge to self identity; cancer narratives and biographical reconstruction; the cancer journey and survivorship; the good death and the meaning of mortality; and media representations of cancer. Students will have the opportunity to interview a cancer survivor, carer or health professional and to engage in debates about contemporary issues in the experience of cancer.
