CfP: Interdisciplinary Analyses of Medicalized Human Bodies and Parts

One-sex/two-sex/sex-spectrum,  Anatomized or amputated parts,  Contamination of and by bodily fluids,  Plastic surgeries,  Bionic integration,  Human drug trials,  In vitro embryology,  Genetic engineering,  Organ markets,  Vaccinations... These are models, circumstances, and concepts that describe and represent our understandings of human bodies, and indicate ways to change, repair, and improve human bodies: perhaps we are attempting to reach human corporeal perfection or immortality; perhaps we are trying to avoid extinction. These modes, circumstances, and ideas are not just medical questions. They are also cultural questions, frequently examining and balancing the multifaceted beneficial advancements with highly problematic or even devastating repercussions. The medicalizing of human bodies and body parts exists in various discourses and media, and demands interdisciplinary analyses across time, space, media, and imagination. In a time when mere drops of exhaled breath threaten

CfP: "History of Ecological Economics and Theory of Natural Capital"

Call for Papers for an online conference devoted to the "History of Ecological Economics and Theory of Natural Capital". The conference will take place digitally from January 28 to 29, 2022. Although it had important antecedents in the nineteenth century, ecological economics is usually related to the thinking of twentieth century biologists and economists, including Kenneth E. Boulding, Howard T. Odum, Robert Costanza, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, and Herman E. Daly, among many others. The initial debate on the entropic nature of the economic process gave rise to a systematic questioning of neoclassical economics and its basic foundations, such as the assumption of the circular flow of exchange value. A new generation of economists sensitive to environmental issues sought to elaborate alternative economic models based on steady-state economics and on a theory of natural value. The successive energy crises of 1973 and 1979-1980 gave definitive impulse for institutional support

New open access book: Alexander Williamson (UCL Press)

Takaaki Inuzuka and translated by Haruko Laurie:  Alexander Williamson.  A Victorian chemist and the making of modern Japan Alexander Williamson was professor of chemistry at UCL (1849–87) and a leading scientist of his time. He taught and cared for visiting Japanese students, thereby assisting them with their goal of modernising Japan. This short, accessible biography explores his contribution to nineteenth-century science as well as his lasting impact on Japanese society. In 1863 five students from the Chōshū clan, with a desperate desire to learn from the West, made their way to England. They were put in the care of Williamson and his wife. Their mission was to learn about cutting-edge Western technology, science, economics and politics. When they returned home they rapidly became leading figures in Japanese life at a particularly turbulent time, one of them serving as the country’s first prime minister. Subsequently many other Japanese students followed in their footsteps and studi
