    Antibio-addicts? Defining and governing antimicrobial resistance in the age of One Health

    The power of antimicrobials is now weakened. Since the “magic bullets” have been introduced in medicine and agriculture in the late 1940s, numerous warnings about the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) have been relayed by international agencies, political leaders, scientists and medical practitioners, or various NGOs. These concerns have highlighted the extent and great diversity of antimicrobial use in a world that has proved to be “antibio-addicted”. Recently the AMR problem seems to have been institutionalized and framed in innovative forms.

    Minimising Risks, Selling Promises?

    Reproductive Health, Techno-Scientific Innovations and the Production of Ignorance

    Over the last decades, medical techno-scientific innovations have radically transformed reproductive processes at every level by putting the reproductive body under strict biomedical surveillance and submitting it to significant technological manipulation. Most of these innovations, often promoted as miracles and even revolutions, were generalised very rapidly thanks to ever-growing national and global markets. Their side effects on health were, however, insufficiently studied, or even ignored, until scandals (diethylstilbestrol, thalidomide, primodos, Dalkon Shield) or controversies (contraceptive pill, hormonal replacement therapy) unavoidably made them public. At the crossroads of STS, sociology of risk, medical anthropology, gender studies and ignorance studies, the aim of this international conference is to analyse the dynamics of ignorance production prior to, during but also after the rapid expansion of reproductive technologies, innovations and products.

    Bodies, markets and television, 1950s-1980s

    The three-day conference aims to investigate how television programmes in their multiplicity approached issues like medical progress and its limits, healthy behaviour or new forms of exercise by adapting them to TV formats and programming...The conference seeks to analyse how television and its evolving formats expressed and staged bodies, health and fitness from local, regional, national and international perspectives. How spectators were invited not only to be TV consuming audiences, but how shows and TV set-ups integrated and sometimes pretended to transform the viewer into a participant of the show. TV programmes spread the conviction that subjects had the ability to shape their own body.

    Knowledge translation and self-management in chronic diseases

    Contexts, tools and practices

    This interdisciplinary conference aims at crossing concepts and empirical research on the processes through which knowledge translation takes place in the self-management of chronic diseases, with a specific scrutiny of the expected and actual functions of the tools and the context in which translation occurs, on the one hand, and of the difficulties and negotiations that people living with a chronic disease face in gaining autonomy, on the other hand. For this purpose, the conference will bring together scholars working within different disciplines as well as healthcare practitioners, designers of medical devices and policy makers, i.e. actors who contribute to the on-going reflection on these salient issues.

    Social Sciences and Humanities Research: translating findings into medical practices

    The aim of this international conference is to initiate a multi- and interdisciplinary discussion, involving various actors, on the use and utility of social science research for and by health professionals, broadly defined. Drawing on examples from completed and ongoing research projects, we will explore the issue of “translation” and “implementation” of Social Sciences and Humanities research findings to the field of medicine and health by analyzing how and under what conditions these findings are mobilized, translated, and used by various actors. The objective is to contribute to a better understanding of the processes involved in the communication and dissemination of knowledge in the social sciences, as well as how this knowledge is actually used by healthcare practitioners.

    The role of health and social welfare policies in European inclusion and exclusion processes

    Health risks created by population movement, and policy responses to them, have been an integral part of European history since the early modern period. They have helped to shape wider cultural ideas on economic risks, attitudes to integration, and enlargement of the EU. Twenty first century Europe is addressing new questions and challenges: how to live together, and include new territories and new populations and cultures without compromising our health, both personal and economic. These have contemporary policy implications. Our aim is to contribute to a deeper understanding of the cultural heritages and roots of the European welfare model.

    “Medicalized” Childbirth as a Public Problem

    Risk Culture(s), Gender Politics, Techno-Reflexivities

    Obstetrical knowledge, technologies and practices have dramatically transformed women’s reproductive experiences worldwide. Medicalization of childbirth was accelerated in the XXth century by the displacement of childbirth from home to the hospital, and by the generalization of surgical techniques and pharmaceutical products. Medical interventionism took multiple, situated forms. Relying on cross-cultural investigations and field data from diverse national contexts (France, USA, Italy, Brazil, Senegal, Turkey, Switzerland, Canada…), this international workshop investigates how “technological” birth came into being, and how it is produced, problematized, framed, and negotiated in the XXIst century.
