X INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND GENDER: VISIONS AND VERSIONS OF BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES.

Fecha: 
De 23/03/2015 hasta 25/03/2015
Información: 

Science, Technology and Society studies deal with different models of governance and public participation in the health sciences and technologies, and their socio-medical implications. These studies analyze the production, circulation and exchange of “expert” and “lay” knowledges, focusing on different biomedical fields where “biosocialities” or groups of patients/affected by different medical categories have emerged. This workshop will pay attention to biomedical fields related to neurologic diseases, rare diseases, etc. and to the socio-medical categories of intersexuality and transexuality, in addition to those technologies used to improve and reinforce bodies (especially women’s) in cosmetic medicine, bio-nutritional, pharmacological, sports-related technologies, etc.
