Malignant: How Cancer Becomes Us - A Conversation with Department of Anthropology Professor Lochlann Jain

Professor Lochlann Jain of the Anthropology Department conducts research primarily concerned with how stories are told about injuries. Her 2013 book, Malignant: How Cancer Becomes Us, explores why cancer remains so confounding, despite the billions of dollars spent in the search for a cure. It has won numerous awards, including the 2014 Diana Forsythe Prize. We’ll speak with her about this book, her current projects, and her experiences with Anthropology.
