    L'université de Strasbourg et le dialogue des disciplines

    Des années 1920 aux pratiques contemporaines

    À l’occasion du centenaire de la nomination à l’université de Strasbourg de figures marquantes pour l’histoire des sciences humaines – Maurice Halbwachs, Marc Bloch, Lucien Febvre, Prosper Alfaric, Charles Blondel... – la Maison des sciences de l'homme – Alsace organise un colloque consacré aux pratiques actuelles et passées de l’interdisciplinarité en sciences humaines et sociales. L’expérience strasbourgeoise des années 1920 sera le point de départ de cette rencontre. Le colloque proposera aussi une approche réflexive des usages de l’interdisciplinarité développés, voire revendiqués en en sciences humaines et sociales depuis quelques décennies.

    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.

    Biocosmos - Our sense of place, our sense of life in the universe

    Planet scientists and exoplanet astronomers are re-shaping our understanding of the universe, presenting a fascinating cosmos filled with places and destinations, not an empty void. At the same time, Earth physicists and biologists design models of self-sustainable ecosystems such as Biosphere 2 and the Mars/Lunar Greenhouse, with the goal of engineering bio-regenerative mini-worlds that can function on their own. As these scientific revolutions unfold, with distant spaces and global life systems as objects of “field work”, what counts as the “human environment”? How do we, as individuals and societies, relate to spaces, things, and processes we do not or cannot experience directly and which we see as “extreme” or “beyond” human?

    Pervasive powers

    Corporate authority in the shaping of public policy

    The power of corporate business has been a subject of intense debate and many social science studies since the 19th century. This conference is based on the idea that, not only has this power varied among industries, countries and different periods, but also that the way in which it is wielded has evolved over time. By bringing together scholars from various backgrounds within the fields of history, sociology, and political science, we intend to provide new insights on the multiplicity, depth and limits of the forms of influence that corporations, or the organizations furthering their interests – business associations, think tanks, communication or public relations agencies, foundations, etc. –, have on public policy.

    European Space Agency's Space History Conference

    There is more to space than rocket science. Historians, diplomats, economists, law students, political scientists and sociologists have all contributed to our understanding of the space age and its impact on our societies over the past decades. Sixty years on from the placing of the first human-made object in orbit around Earth, space is now an integral part of our daily lives. Space science and technology are projects for the whole of humankind, reaching not only outside Earth’s atmosphere, but also beyond our Solar System. While the technological and scientific challenges of working, living and travelling in space motivate students to pursue such studies, the impact of space activities on our lives on Earth, on relations between nations and organisations, and our collective recent history, provides fertile ground for students and scholars in the humanities to take up space-related subjects.

    L’identité humaine au prisme du microbiome : perspectives artistiques et enjeux philosophiques

    La découverte du microbiome humain a révolutionné la façon dont les scientifiques définissent notre espèce. Chez l’humain, les études dites métagénomiques ont révélé qu’une minorité des cellules qui composent notre corps sont des cellules humaines, les autres étant des cellules bactériennes. Or, s’il est vrai que la plupart de nos cellules ne sont pas des cellules humaines, on peut alors se demander en quoi sommes-nous encore humains ? Que reste-t-il de l’Homo sapiens à l’aune des recherches sur le microbiome ? Poursuivant leur intérêt pour les questions de corps et d’identité, les arts visuels s’emparent aujourd’hui du microbiome, ainsi que des recherches et de l’imaginaire qui y sont associées, comme source d’inspiration et de création.

    Construisons ensemble l'innovation de demain

    Les rapports entre recherche, innovation, marchés, entreprises, État et espace public, c'est-à dire, en d'autres termes, les rapports entre sciences et société ont connu de profondes mutations. De même, le contexte environnemental et socio-économique actuel appelle aujourd'hui, les acteurs à explorer de nouveaux chemins pour faire face à ces enjeux.

    Politicizing the Future of the (Semantic) Web

    Philoweb 2015

    The relationship between the Web and philosophy is now at a crucial turning point. While a group of philosophers and philosophically-influenced scholars are increasingly interested in the Web, we are facing unprecedented challenges around its future that requires concerted efforts between researcher and disciplines to be properly addressed. With both Internet governance and the very architecture of the Web undergoing rapid change, now is the time for a philosophy of the Web to help to fulfill the Web’s full potential, expanding upon its fundamental principles in new terrains ranging from mass surveillance to the impact of the Internet of things.

    L'expertise médicale aux XXe et XXIe siècles

    Medical expertise in the 20th and 21st century / Medizinische Expertise im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert / L'expertise médicale aux XXe et XXIe siècles. Annual conference of the Swiss Society for the History of Medicine and Sciences, September 5 – 7, 2013, Bern, Switzerland. The conference would like to address the issue from various perspectives and ask e.g. the following questions: To which levels of medical knowledge and activity (skill, professional knowledge, experience, relationship with patients) did and does the claim of expertise refer to? Which strategies, rhetorics and kinds of self-fashioning were and are used in order to achieve, retain or reject the status of expertise? Which was and is the relationship between expertise, profession(nalism), institutionalization and specialization? In what respect is there a difference between a physician's claim of expertise and that of other health professionals?
