"As writers and producers of demanding images and texts, what do we want from our readers? Too shock? To evoke pity? To create new forms of narrative, an 'aesthetic' of misery, and anthropology of suffering, and anthropological theodicy? And what of the people whose suffering and fearful accommodations to it are transformed into a public spectacle? What is our obligation to them?" -Nancy Scheper-Hughes, The Primacy of the Ethical: Propositions for a Militant Anthropology.
