3rd SUMMER SCHOOL “BIOMEDICINE AND STS: EMERGING THEMES” September 2015
PaSTIS in collaboration with STS Italia (the Italian Society of Science and Technology Studies) organizes the 3rd STS Summer School titled “Biomedicine and STS: Emerging Themes”.
The SS will be held in Padova (Italy) from September 15th to 19th, 2015. 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.
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.
