Biomedicine & STS: Emerging Themes

di Redazione FGB [1], 18 Settembre 2015

STS Italia, the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies - in collaboration with the University of Padova, FISPPA Department - has organized its 3rd Summer School, "Biomedicine and STS: Emerging Themes", in Padova (Italy) from September 15th to 19th, 2015.

Biomedicine and related fields (such as genetics, biotechnology and the life sciences) play an increasing role in social, economic, political, and personal life. Recent developments in the field of biomedicine have posed novel challenges for the politics and ethics of health care, as they raise a great number of ethical, moral and social issues. Scholarship in Science and Technology Studies (STS) has developed a variety of approaches, theoretical frameworks and methodological insights for investigating these complex phenomena. This summer school introduces participants to major approaches, exploring new research frontiers and emerging themes:

- co-production of biomedical knowledge
- patient organizations and engagement
- biomedical imaging and visualization
- health, ageing and environment
- gender, body and emerging configurations of biomedical technologies.

The Summer School will offer PhD students and early career researchers the opportunity to interact with STS international scholars with a transdisciplinary background in social studies of science, technology and medicine.


Confirmed speakers:

Madeleine Akrich, Mines ParisTech University, France
Attila Bruni, University of Trento, Italy
Regula Valerie Burri, HafenCity University Hamburg, Germany
Manuela Perrotta, Queen Mary, University of London, United Kingdom
Vololona Rabeharisoa, Mines ParisTech University, France
