Novedad bibliográfica: Immunization and States The Politics of Making Vaccines

Edited By Stuart Blume & Baptiste Baylac-Paouly Globally, there has been a move  away from national public sector vaccine development over the past 30 years. Immunization and States: The Politics of Making Vaccines explores vaccine geopolitics, analyzing why, and how this move happened, before looking at the ramifications in the context of Covid-19. This unique book uses eight country studies – looking at Croatia, India, Iran, the Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden – to explore the role of public sector vaccine institutes, past and present. Raising questions about national sovereignty, the erosion of multilateralism, and geopolitics, it also contributes to debates around public interest and privatization in the health sector. An extended introduction sets the chapters in an international context, whilst the epilogue looks forward to the future of vaccine development and production. This is an important book for students, scholars, and practitioners with an interest in

CfP: Making women and other underrepresented groups visible in philosophy and history of science

From Young Researchers For Young Researchers WORKSHOP from 7 to 8 March 2023,   at the Karl-Franzens University Graz Making women and other underrepresented groups visible in philosophy and history of science The Centre for the History of Science and the Institute of Philosophy of the Karl-Franzens University of Graz are organizing a workshop from 7 to 8 March 2023, in which female and other underrepresented scientists and philosophers who have been formative for philosophy, science, or the history of science in the course of history and who have received little or no attention in the previous (philosophy and science) historiography will be given space. The workshop strives for a cross-epochal orientation, through which it becomes possible to shed light on the participation of women and other underrepresented groups in the history of philosophy and science. The one-and-a-half-day colloquium will be interdisciplinary, and this interdisciplinarity should make it possible to look at the e

Call for Abstracts: Feminist Techno-imaginaries, Feminist Encounters special issue

Feminism has a long history of wrestling with technologies: not only with the inequalities and blind spots inherent in research, production, and marketing, but also with the effects of different technological forms and arrangements on social relationships, ways of life, and on the body. Technologically permeated societies are a global reality, and feminist, queer, critical race, decolonial, and crip theories are pivotal in offering critical analyses and ways of imagining, producing, and using technologies differently. This issue of Feminist Encounters sets out to re-inspect the entanglements between technology and imagination from a range of feminist perspectives in disciplines like STS, philosophy and critical theory, media history and media archaeology, cultural history, and cultural and comparative literature studies. Greek-French philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis’ theorisation of the radical individual imagination and the socially instituting imaginary (1975) foregrounds the creati

Call for abstracts- New Voices Talk Serie and Conference - Women and their body

Recent events have shown that it is urgent and fundamentally important to shed new light, through philosophical, linguistic, literary, scientific, medical and artistic perspectives, on the female body and the position of women in relation to their body. Too often it seems that women do not have the right to determine their own body, although men have never been deprived of this right. The question of power over the body is strongly linked to the distinction between men and women. It seems that men have more rights and power on their own body than  women. But how is this possible? What is the status of the female body in culture and society? Why is the female body both, an object of  desire and a battlefield for demonstrating male power? To what extent have medicine and technology interfered in recent years with the female body and with what consequences? In the context of the New Voices Talk Series at the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists at Paderborn, we are
