Anna Žabicka’s lecture “Aging, memory and personality”
Social anthropologist whose research focuses on the anthropology of health, medicine, death, aging, care, and kinship. Anna is currently a doctoral student at the Universität Wien. She holds a master’s degree in anthropology from the Rīga Stradiņš University and from the Wayne State University in the US. Anna is researching the interaction between aging and care in the Latvian countryside, addressing aging both as an individual experience and a federal matter, as well as caregiving as a (trans)formative practice, which is both a sustaining and dividing practice that’s becoming a part of a wider social reproduction in the Latvian countryside.
