After a fatal cardiac arrest in June 2009, my five-year-old niece was revived and put on life-support until her ânew heartâ arrived (at the awed relief of my family and the unbearable loss of anotherâs) on the morning of August 6th. I will explore what I call the âtransplanted subjectivitiesâ formed through the anonymous gestures of organ donation, as the transplanted organ upsets the boundaries between separate bodies and intimate, incorporated, though anonymous identities. Illuminating overlapping social, medical, psychological, and literary discourses of transplantation, I will examine the unanswerable autobiographical questions of incorporating an unknown other into oneâs self.
