Event: ‘It’s Not What You Think: Communicating Medical Materialities’ 8/9 March 2013
Next year, I will be participating in a two-day workshop at the Medical Museion, University of Copenhagen. The workshop revolves around materiality and its place in the academy, in particular the exploration of possibilities to relate the ‘messy, material processes of science’ in the space of the academy, science communication and public engagement. As the organisers phrase it:
‘How can we communicate about and through materiality – within academia, across disciplinary boundaries, and in public realms flowing with political, ethical, and practical eddies stirred up by a discussion of things?’
These and other questions will be explored through the theme of medicine and the body.
