Empirical studies of begi nnings and ends of life in Southeast Asia suggest that the way a person is born and dies is often considered to reflect their moral qualities. Researc hers show that during pregnancy and childbirth the moral personhood of the child is often seen to be at stake, while at the same time where and how a woman gives birth can have profound affects for her coming-into-being as a mother in local moral communities and for her relationship to the state (se e, e.g. Blackburn 2004; Gammeltoft 2014; Liamputtong et. al. 2004). In the case of dying, scholars show how a ‘good’ death may not only index the mora l personhood of the deceased person, but also their transition to, and posi tion in, the afterlife (see, e.g, Samuels in\npress; Shohet 2018; Stoningto n 2012). Moreover, the ethics of birthing and dying may equally impact care givers. This panel aims to gather scholars working in and on Southeast Asia n societies to think through the ethics of birthing and dying together. How are birthing and dying implicated in constructions of moral personhood? Ho w do these culturally specific notions of moral personhood affect practices of caregiving and biomedical interventions at the beginning and end of lif e? We invite contributions based on empirical research from an interdiscipl inary perspective, including (but not limited to) the fields of anthropolog y, religious studies, history, sociology, gender studies and public health. Panellists are welcome to focus on either birthing or dying, or both. Ulti mately, with this panel we aim to provide insight into the cultural dimensi ons and moralities of care and personhood at these crucial moments in life.
