If any anthropologist living today can illuminate our dim understanding of death's enigma, it is Robert Desjarlais.
With "Subject to Death", Desjarlais provides an intimate, philosophical account of death and mourning practices among Hyolmo Buddhists, an ethnically Tibetan Buddhist people from Nepal. He studies the death preparations of the Hyolmo, their specific rituals of grieving, and the practices they use to heal the psychological trauma of loss. Desjarlais's research marks a major advance in the ethnographic study of death, dying, and grief, one with broad implications. Ethnologically nuanced, beautifully written, and twenty-five years in the making, "Subject to Death" is an insightful study of how fundamental aspects of human existence - identity, memory, agency, longing, bodiliness - are enacted and eventually dissolved through social and communicative practices of the Hyolmo people. O autorze Robert Desjarlais is professor of anthropology at Sarah Lawrence College. He is the author of several books, including "Shelter Blues: Sanity and Selfhood" among the "Homeless and Counterplay: An Anthropologist at the Chessboard".

An element of poiesis, of generative fashioning (Desjarlais 2012, 2016), courses through the appearance of many of these photographs. The language quoted is drawn from the abstract for this symposium, written by Brian Goldstone and Robert Desjarlais. Robert Desjarlais is an anthropologist who teaches at Sarah Lawrence College. Publications of his include Shelter Blues: Sanity and Selfhood among the Homeless (University of Pennsylvania Press, 1997), Sensory Biographies: Lives and Deaths among Nepal's Yolmo Buddhists (University of California Press, 2003), and Subject to Death: Life and Loss in a Buddhist World (University of Chicago Press, 2016). He is currently working on a research and writing project that attends to themes of photography, memory, perception, and the politics of surveillance and violence in Europe.
