Description - Biopolitics of Breast Cancer by Maren Klawiter
Maren Klawiter analyzes the evolution of the breast cancer movement to show the broad social impact of how diseases come to be medically managed and publicly administered. Examining surgical procedures, adjuvant therapies, early detection campaigns, and the rise in discourses of risk, Klawiter demonstrates that these practices created a change in the social relations - if not the mortality rate - of breast cancer that initially inhibited, but later
enabled, collective action.
