Representations
Living in Prognosis: Toward an Elegiac Politics
Sarah Lochlann Jain

Abstract

This essay examines how prognosis serves as a representational space for people living with and dying of cancer. It argues that as one of a series of means by which an elusive disease is made material, the prognosis also holds fantasies about the future, the past, and counterfactual futures and pasts.
