INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM,   Português/English,  03 – 04 February, 2023.  COIMBRA UNIVERSITY, PORTUGAL Technopolitics is a follow up conference that intends to depart and expand the concept of Cyberpolitics to all the dimensions and effects of technology in our lives but placing politics at the center of debate and thought. Most investigation in the fields of Humanities have highlighted the impact of digitization and social virtualization and mapped the transition from industrial revolution, and mass disciplinary society, to the digital revolution, telework and social atomism.

CfP: 'New Horizons for Medical Museums and Collections' Conference, Leiden 2023

Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, Leiden / the Netherlands, 20 - 23 September 2023 Medical museums are in permanent flux. Collections containing objects related to the history of medicine and health play a role in teaching, research and learning in the broadest sense. The past years medical museums in particular have demonstrated the power to contribute to patient communities, health and wellbeing, and society at large. Yet from small scale local collections to national medical heritage entities, ways of dealing with medical collections will continue to change with the urgent challenges and questions that lay ahead. The conference aims to investigate the role and value of medical museums (and/or medical collections) for societies in the past, present and future. What is the potential of medical collections? How can medical museums be of value in the context of current and future challenges? To explore this topic, an international and interdisciplinary conference will be held at   Rijksmuseum Boer

We seek proposals for a conference on the history of nuclear research in medicine. The conference will be held at the Medical University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna from the 20th to 21st of March 2023. Deadline for submissions is the 15th of November 2022. https://www.stgs.fau.de/2022/ 09/20/nuclear-research-in- medicine-after-the-second- world-war/   Nuclear research in medicine relies on a high degree of interaction. While the production of radioisotopes and the development of medical devices are carried out by physicists and engineers, chemists and pharmacists take over the syntheses of radiopharmaceuticals, while physicians focus on their application. In the absence of handbooks, industrially available devices, and radioisotopes, early specialists were also dependent on multilateral exchanges. These were fostered by post-war agreements for the peaceful use of atomic energy and international organizations such as the IAEA and WHO. Thus, the formation of
