CONNECTED AND PLASTIC: POROUS BOUNDARIES OF HUMANS AND MACHINES
“Connected and Plastic. Porous boundaries of humans and machines” is the title of the joint seminar organized by the PaSTIS Research Unit (Padova Science Technology and Innovation Studies – University of Padova) of the Fisppa and the STS Lab UNIL (Laboratoire d’étude des sciences et des techniques – Université de Lausanne).
The seminar will explore the different socio-technical dimensions related to ongoing biomedical approaches to “connected” and “plastic” brains and bodies, hence to assess their implications ranging from health practices and policies to care relationships, up to the reconfiguration of patients’ identities and care environments.
The two confirmed keynote speeches will be delivered by Ruth Müller (University of Munich) and Ola Söderström (University of Neuchâtel).
The seminar is organized with the support of the University of Padova (Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology) and the University of Lausanne (Institut des Sciences Sociales), within their ongoing privileged partnership for joint projects.
The seminar takes place in Padova (FISPPA Department – Section of Sociology – Via Cesarotti n. 10/12), on 14th and 15th September 2023.
