About The Author

Alex Broom

Katherine Kenny

This textbook, Survivorship: A Sociology of Cancer in Everyday Life (PDF), provides a contemporary and comprehensive examination of cancer in everyday life, drawing on qualitative research with people living with cancer, their family members, and health professionals. It explores the evolving and enduring effects of cancer for individuals, families, and communities, with attention to the changing dynamics of survivorship, including social relations around waiting, uncertainty, hope, wilfulness, obligation, responsibility, and healing. Challenging simplistic deployments of survivorship and drawing on contemporary and classical social theory, it critically examines survivorship through innovative qualitative methodologies, including interviews, focus groups, participant-produced photos, and solicited diaries. In assembling this panoramic view of cancer in the twenty-first century, it also enlivens core debates in sociology, including questions around individual agency, subjectivity, resistance, effect, temporality, normativity, and embodiment. A thoughtful account of cancer embedded in the undulations of every day, narrated by its subjects and those who informally and formally care for them, Survivorship: A Sociology of Cancer in Everyday Life outlines new ways of thinking about survivorship for sociologists, health, and medical researchers and those working in cancer care settings.
