‘Not Another Fucking Cancer Diary’: Temporality and Commitment in the Literary Event of Cancer
An essay on temporality in ‘Cancer Diary’ literature that interprets the moment of a terminal diagnosis through Badiou’s notion of ‘The Event’
I’ve finally published my undergraduate thesis (and what) in its pretty much unedited form. I decided that there is nothing wrong with how proud I was of myself for completing my degree despite the number of pretty dramatic & horrific challenges that cropped up during those four years.
A first printing of a 2015 essay looking at temporality in illness memoirs written by existing public figures, specifically within the context of terminal diagnoses of cancer. The analysis is framed by Badiou’s notion of ‘The Event’, and aims to contribute to the steadily growing field of autopathography studies.
