Rima Praspaliauskiene, University of California, Berkeley
In her lecture Dr. Praspaliauskiene will talk about the role of “white envelopes” in medical settings. The figure of the envelope emerges as a concrete-abstraction and a way to explore complex doctor-patient interactions that go beyond notions of the gift or the bribe and the political economy of care in contemporary Lithuania. Handing envelopes containing money or gifts to doctors in public health care is often seen as a remnant of socialism, a corrupt and unethical practice that continues as an integral part of the Lithuanian health care system. However, these practices can be seen as emerging forms of care that impede neoliberal healthcare reforms in post-socialist contexts.
