On Cancer and Metaphor with Shekinah Elmore & Elena Semino Gravity

    • Society & Culture

When we talk about illness, why does metaphor matter? What does it mean to think about cancer as a battle? What are the possibilities for other metaphors? And can the language we choose reframe the experience of illness itself?

In this episode, host Lucy Kalanithi is joined by oncologist Shekinah Elmore and linguist Elena Semino.
