Re-Facing the Other: Face Transplants and a New Ethics of Relationality

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper draws on face transplant surgery and the digital environment to explore the vexing of the 1:1 correlation between a specific face and one individual. The face transplant shows that one face can belong to multiple people, and digital space offers multiple faces for one individual. Scholars such as Goffman, Arendt, and Sennett have explored the historical roots for performance of the self and the multiplicity of faces; this paper draws on these scholars to highlight the increased pressures on the face-character index in light of recent developments, using the vexing of the index to discuss the deep discomfort engendered by the surgery. I then examine the possibilities of a new ethics of relationally, using Levinas to think through alternative models of responsibility to the other through an expansive view of the meaning of the face of the other.
