Novedad bibliográfica: Conversaciones nocturnas sobre la enseñanza de la medicina

 A lo largo de su ejercicio como profesor de Historia de la medicina, y más recientemente de Humanidades médicas, el autor ha tenido la fortuna de que algunos de sus alumnos le hayan confiado sus dudas, zozobras, temores y críticas acerca de su experiencia formativa, comunicación que en no pocos casos se ha mantenido durante mucho tiempo y hasta el presente. Esta relación, a menudo a distancia debido a las circunstancias de cada cual, desembocó no hace mucho en el proyecto de dar forma a las conversaciones nocturnas que, a través del correo electrónico, los más noveles y los más veteranos sostenían con él relativas a la enseñanza de la medicina. La demanda inicial podría formularse como: “¿Cuál fue, Luis, tu experiencia como estudiante? ¿Cómo y por qué te decidiste por la docencia en tu especialidad?”

Pero lo realmente valioso de aquella iniciativa, y seguramente de este libro, es que, de forma poco habitual, la palabra de los estudiantes presentes y pasados comenzó a fluir al reclamo de esa breve y nada convencional rememoración autobiográfica.

Un libro solicitado -sin saber que llegaría a existir- por los propios estudiantes, en el que ellos tienen la palabra sin cortapisa alguna…

Nueva publicación: ¡Madre y patria!

¡Madre y patria! puede entenderse como una continuación, muy mejorada y aplicada a un estudio de caso –el de Argentina desde finales del siglo XIX hasta hoy–, de la sexta entrega proyectada por Foucault para la redacción de una genealogía de la sexualidad en Occidente. Lo que este pretendía exponer de manera compartimentada, separando a las mujeres de los niños, de los hombres adultos y de las parejas, aparece tratado en el presente libro de una manera transversal, aunando la historia de las racionalidades biopolíticas, los estudios de género y el análisis acerca de la construcción de las identidades nacionales.

Marisa Miranda, autora de un sinnúmero de trabajos fundamentales de historia de la eugenesia, del cuerpo, del darwinismo social o de la sexualidad en Argentina, pone este trasfondo al servicio de una reconstrucción genealógica de la figura de la madre y de la maternidad, afrontada como garantía del vigor y de la supervivencia de una gran nación.

Nacida en Ensenada, Marisa Adriana Miranda es doctora en Ciencias Jurídicas (UNLP) e investigadora principal del CONICET. Se desempeña como subdirectora del Instituto de Cultura Jurídica (UNLP), donde también codirige el Área de Estudios Culturales de la Ciencia.
Es profesora de grado y posgrado en diversas universidades públicas de la Argentina e investigadora invitada por organismos científicos de España, Brasil y Chile. Su línea de trabajo se concentra en el estudio de biopolíticas de la sexualidad, con particular énfasis en indagaciones sobre eugenesia.

CFP: Journal Women and Careers

Recent public debates concerning women’s relationships at work have become more heated than ever. The Me Too movement, whose intensity has created global waves of dispute, involving  personalities from all over the world and various domains and challenging more or less notorious people from all walks of life to take a stand, is only one of the major events that have questioned the actual professional status of women in contemporary society. The rattle of local or international media, more than once anecdotal however with a considerable impact upon mentalities, has reflected in an explicit or implicit manner, the mutations that the perception of the connection between women and jobs has suffered. ‟Was Meghan Markle right to take her royal husband out of England so as to be able to preserve, in her way, her contact (and contracts) with the world of movie-making?”, ‟Do you know that women in Russia got the legal right to drive underground trains in January 2021?”, ‟Can Gone with the Wind be interpreted primarily as the novel of a professional woman, of Scarlett gaining independence (emotional and financial) through hard work and making her way in a men’s world?” Many such questions that have been asked by/in the media cause frenzied (if not downright enraged) responses that are given justification by sociologists, psychologists and anthropologists. Many writers have also offered answers to this communal need to observe, analyze, redefine, and revise women’s role in their extremely complex positioning in the marketplace and within the dynamics and interdependency among social technological political scientific and cultural relationships.

The Meridian Critic journal dedicates this issue to Women and Careers and welcomes authors’ contributions that will reveal the way in which fiction has viewed and altered the image of working women. The articles should be as much as possible concerned with the following topics:

CfP: SHAC postgraduate Workshop

The Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry invites submissions for the 12th Annual Postgraduate Workshop

This year’s theme is “Secrets of Matter, Matters of Secrecy: Concealing (al)chemical Knowledge from Ciphers to the Military Industrial Complex”

Two-day virtual workshop, June 3 – 4, 2021

SHAC’s annual series of workshops fosters interdisciplinary exchange among graduate students and early career scholars from any field whose work engages with the history of alchemy and chemistry.

We invite proposals for short, 10-minute virtual presentations related to secrecy in the history of alchemy and chemistry. Proposals representing any geographic region and time period are welcome. We especially encourage projects pertaining to alchemical ciphers, information networks, trade secrecy, intellectual property, toxicology, agnotology, and the military industrial complex.

The virtual workshop will be held on June 3-4, 2021, 10am – 2pm EST. Presentations will be grouped thematically and followed by synthetic discussion. 

CfP: Building National Character: science, politics, and citizenship in 19th and 20th century Europe, 21 May 2021

 This is a call for participation to contribute to a one-day workshop exploring the relationship between science and politics in the construction of national identities and citizenship in 19th and 20th century Europe.

Participation will include a combination of: (a) pre-circulation of papers, (b) video presentations, (c) engagement in live panel discussions, and (d) discussion of other papers in the workshop. Papers prepared for this workshop may be included in an anthology on the subject the organisers plan to propose to UCL Press.


We encourage proposals from scholars at all stages of their careers. We especially encourage proposals on topics including: practical and political use of science in the construction of national identity; nationalism and internationalism in science; political significance of science communication; interaction between scientific and political ideas in museum exhibitions and popular science; and the use science in the household.


We envision most proposals will suggest contributions in the form of a 20-25-minute presentation and an essay approximately 8,000-10,000 words. We are happy to consider alternatives, such as short-scale introductory work (especially from early doctoral students) or mid-scale review work.


The symposium will take place online on 21 May 2021. We will consider an in-person event in London if circumstances allow.


Interested persons are asked to submit a title and abstract (approximately 200 words) to Dr Maria Kiladi by 29 January 2021.

CfA: Philosophy and Methodology of Medicine, June 1-3 2021 online at LMU Munich

The claims of medicine have been supported by a wide variety of different methods, ranging from randomized controlled trials to expert judgement and mechanism-based reasoning. Miriam Solomon has therefore aptly characterized medicine in terms of a =E2=80=9Cdeveloping, untidy, methodological pluralism. But can philosophers help with this development? In recent years, philosophers of science have become increasingly interested in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the various methods employed in medicine. Some have defended the methodological superiority of randomized controlled trials, or at least meta-analyses of such trials. Others have challenged this superiority by on the one hand stressing the weaknesses of such methods in terms of their internal or external validity, and on the other hand emphasising the strengths of alternative methods, including methods involving expert judgement and mechanistic evidence.

This online conference will bring together philosophers of science and medical methodologists in an attempt to make progress towards resolving these debates concerning the strengths and weaknesses of the various methods employed in medicine.

We welcome submissions of abstracts of no longer than one page (not including references) for thirty-minute talks on topics in the philosophy and methodology of medicine, including but not limited to:
