L'étrange destin du docteur Voronoff

L'étrange destin du docteur Voronoff. En quête d'une jeunesse éternelle ?

René Predal



L'Harmattan
Médecine à travers les siècles
mai 2017 • 260 pages
ISBN : 978-2-343-12084-3 

Alors que la psychanalyse commence à répandre les théories freudiennes plaçant la sexualité au centre des psychoses et névroses, le Docteur Voronoff, lui, soigne les organes génitaux. Excellant dans l'art des greffes, il agit en chirurgien et non en psychologue. Pour lui, le désir est entre les jambes et non dans le cerveau. En avance sur son temps, Voronoff découvre l'importance fondamentale des glandes sexuelles dans les comportements et l'esprit humains. Mais sa réputation sulfureuse finira par se retourner contre sa valeur scientifique dans un combat entre éthique et raison.

Contrôler la contagion

Controlling ‘Unseen’ Contagion: Disease, citizenship and mobility

Call for Papers

10 Jul 2017, 09:00 to 10 Jul 2017, 17:00

IHR Wolfson Conference Suite, NB01/NB02, Basement, IHR, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

This one day event seeks to bring together PhD students and ECRs interested in how the movement, citizenship, and ‘prospects’ of those with unseen, or invisible, health conditions have been historically controlled.
The term ‘unseen’ can be interpreted as internal, hidden, or even transient forms of disease/disability, whether mental, physical, infectious or non-infectious.
Controls could be formal - designed by the nation-state against individuals or groups of people deemed to be a ‘threat’, or informal discriminatory practices at a ‘local’ level.
This broad scope could include curtailing mobility over local, regional or national borders; denying health, welfare, housing or employment support/rights; or restrictions placed on a person’s ‘social capital’ precluding them from socio-economic circles.
We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations on topics related to (but not limited to):
  • How the state/society acted to marginalize individuals and groups showing no obvious signs of ‘impairment’.
  • How proof of immunity/vaccination/recovery improved or impaired a person’s mobility, or their economic, political, and social capital.
  • How risk was associated with certain groups or people; were these theories scientifically informed or culturally constructed?
  • What assumptions were made in relation to conditions perceived to be self-inflicted or due to a person being in an environment unsuitable for their ‘racial profile’?
  • How did the state reconcile commercial and public health considerations?
  • How the larger community dealt with the lack of official intervention against the invisible contagious types.
  • Has disease-status made discrimination against afflicted groups more politically and socially acceptable? 
There are no restrictions on chronological or geographical focus.

We aim to offer a collegial, informal atmosphere enabling junior scholars to be given valuable feedback on their work.

Refreshments, lunch and a wine reception will be provided. We hope to offer a number of bursaries to assist with travel costs.

Please send a short abstract (250 words) and a CV (1 side A4) to Jennifer.Kain@sas.ac.uk and Kathryn.Olivarius@sas.ac.ukby Monday 29 May 2017.

L'idée qui guide notre atelier « Psy-ences » consiste à essayer d'avoir chaque année un panel de présentations qui illustrent les thématiques, pistes de recherche et méthodologies actuelles dans l'étude des sciences ayant à voir avec le « psychisme » construit au sens très large. Le thème de l' « institutionnalisation », retenu pour cette session, vise à identifier à la fois les processus académiques et disciplinaires qui ont gouverné et gouvernent la création et le fonctionnement de ces sciences, les dynamiques politiques, sociales, religieuses, culturelles qui déterminent la prise en charge des phénomènes « psy » (qu'on les aborde sociologiquement ou historiquement, ou les deux à la fois), et les conceptualisations récentes qui permettent d'en élargir le champ ou la compréhension (par exemple, du point de vue des sciences cognitives et de la philosophie de l'esprit, au travers des idées de « cognition incarnée » et de « cognition étendue »). C'est donc une perspective extrêmement large que nous favorisons, pour faire en sorte que les différents praticiens et spécialistes puissent à la fois échanger au niveau de leurs objets d'étude, de leurs méthodes d'analyse et de leurs outils théoriques.

Les changements technologiques dans la chirurgie moderne

Technological Change in Modern Surgery: Historical Perspectives on Innovation 


Thomas Schlich & Christopher Crenner (Editors)



Series: Rochester Studies in Medical History
Hardcover: 264 pages
Publisher: University of Rochester Press (May 15, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1580465946


Surgery is an ideal field for examining the processes of technological change in medicine. The contributors to this book go beyond the concept of innovation, with its focus on a single technology and its sharp dichotomy of acceptance versus rejection. Instead they explore the historical contexts of change in surgery, looking at the complex dynamics of the various treatment options available -- old and new, surgical and nonsurgical -- as well as the variable character of the new technologies themselves, thus broadening and transcending the notion of technological innovation.

Le traitement contre les addictions aux États-Unis

The Recovery Revolution. The Battle Over Addiction Treatment in the United States


Claire D. Clark 


Columbia University Press
May 2017
336 pages
FORMAT: Hardcover
ISBN: 9780231176385

In the 1960s, as illegal drug use grew from a fringe issue to a pervasive public concern, a new industry arose to treat the addiction epidemic. Over the next five decades, the industry's leaders promised to rehabilitate the casualties of the drug culture even as incarceration rates for drug-related offenses climbed. In this history of addiction treatment, Claire D. Clark traces the political shift from the radical communitarianism of the 1960s to the conservatism of the Reagan era, uncovering the forgotten origins of today's recovery movement.

Based on extensive interviews with drug-rehabilitation professionals and archival research, The Recovery Revolution locates the history of treatment activists' influence on the development of American drug policy. Synanon, a controversial drug-treatment program launched in California in 1958, emphasized a community-based approach to rehabilitation. Its associates helped develop the therapeutic community (TC) model, which encouraged peer confrontation as a path to recovery. As TC treatment pioneers made mutual aid profitable, the model attracted powerful supporters and spread rapidly throughout the country. The TC approach was supported as part of the Nixon administration's "law-and-order" policies, favored in the Reagan administration's antidrug campaigns, and remained relevant amid the turbulent drug policies of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. While many contemporary critics characterize American drug policy as simply the expression of moralizing conservatism or a mask for racial oppression, Clark recounts the complicated legacy of the "ex-addict" activists who turned drug treatment into both a product and a political symbol that promoted the impossible dream of a drug-free America.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Claire D. Clark is an assistant professor of behavioral science at the University of Kentucky. Her work has been published in the American Journal of Public Health and Social History of Alcohol and Drugs.

Functiebeschrijving

This is an exciting opportunity to join a relatively new research team carrying out comparative collaborative work on medical practices. In particular we are looking for a historian to conduct oral history interviews, and relevant archival research, in Budapest, Tamale and Maastricht. The historian will attend to doctors’ learning and teaching with technologies. He/she will work independently and in collaboration with the two PhD ethnographers and the principal investigator (PI) of the project, Anna Harris. The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to expand on the details of their own research based on their expertise, the material they gather and their own ideas, in consultation with the PI. They will also work synergistically and collectively with the rest of the team. For example, they will: play a crucial role in the conceptual and methodological innovations required by the project as a collective endeavour; lead, and contribute to, academic publications; participate in team meetings; offer active support to the PhDs; engage in presentations; and be involved in the co-organisation of workshops and other events related to the project.


Functie-eisen

Historians who have a completed PhD in the history of medicine and/or technology (or another relevant topic/field, such as the senses, media or education for example), with methodological experience in oral history interviewing, are invited to apply. The postdoctoral researcher will be based in Maastricht and will spend several months conducting interviews in Hungary and in Ghana. The successful candidate must be willing to travel, be open to working together with a team of anthropologists and STS scholars on a collaborative project, and have excellent organisational abilities. Excellent communication and writing skills in English are a prerequisite, since the candidates will be engaging on an international level, collaborating with other team members in English and producing English-language publications. Knowledge of Hungarian or a Ghanaian language is an advantage, however not essential as interpreters will be hired for the oral history interviews if necessary.


Arbeidsvoorwaarden
We offer a dynamic and challenging job in an internationally-oriented organisation where young people receive an advanced education and scholars conduct exciting research. The postdoctoral researcher will have the unique opportunity to carry out research within one or more of the four themes within the research programme. They will be part of an international network of top universities and renowned scholars within the field. 

We offer a 1.00 fte appointment as Researcher for 3 years. The first year will be a probation period, after a positive assessment the position will be extended for the remaining two years. 

Your position of Post-doctoral Researcher (Onderzoeker 3) will consist of 100% research. 

Remuneration will be according to standard salary levels, depending on education and relevant work experience. This implies a gross monthly salary of about € 3.068,00 per month, scale level 10 (based on a full-time appointment). Each year the standard salary is supplemented with a holiday allowance of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%. After a positive assessment a promotion to scale 11 is possible in the 2nd year. 

You have to be willing to move to (the vicinity of) Maastricht. If you do not already live in Maastricht (or its direct surroundings) you will be eligible for an allowance for moving costs. If you do not already live in Maastricht (or its direct surroundings) you might be eligible for an allowance for alternative housing. 

Other secondary conditions include e.g. a pension scheme and partially paid parental leave. 

You will be provided with shared office space and a PC. 

Dienstverband: Temporary, 3 years

Research at UM is characterized by a multidisciplinary and thematic approach, and is concentrated in research institutes and schools. Maastricht University has around 16,000 students and 4,000 employees. Reflecting the university's strong international profile, a fair amount of both students and staff are from abroad. The university hosts 6 faculties: Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Faculty of Law, School of Business and Economics, Faculty of Humanities and Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience.

Afdeling
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) has about 250 staff members, and about 1,600 students. More than 75% of the students are non-Dutch (almost 40 different nationalities). All programmes are offered in English and some are also offered in Dutch. FASoS offers two 3-year Bachelor’s programmes: Arts and Culture and European Studies. It also offers six different 1-year Master’s programmes and two 2-year research Master’s programmes. 
Research is organised around four programmes: Politics and Culture in Europe; Science, Technology and Society Studies; Arts, Media and Culture; and Globalisation, Transnationalism and Development. The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is housed in the historic city centre of Maastricht.

Additionele informatie
Applicants are invited for a 3-year postdoctoral position within the project “Making clinical sense: A comparative study of how doctors learn in digital times”. The project is funded by the European Research Council (Starting Grant), awarded to the principal investigator, Anna Harris. 

Research project
Digital technologies are reconfiguring medical practices in ways we still don’t understand.“Making clinical sense: A comparative study of how doctors learn in digital times” seeks to examine the impact of the digital in medicine by studying the role of pedagogical technologies in how doctors learn the skills of their profession. It focuses on the centuries-old skill of physical examination; a sensing of the body, through the body. Medical students are increasingly learning these skills away from the bedside, through videos, simulated models and in laboratories. A research team of three ethnographers and a historian will interrogate how learning with these technologies affects how doctors learn to sense bodies.

Simultaneous, comparative fieldwork will soon be undertaken by three ethnographers (the PI and two PhDs) with medical students and teachers in medical schools and teaching hospitals in: Maastricht, the Netherlands; Budapest, Hungary; and Tamale, Ghana. The role of the historian will be to conduct oral histories at each of these three sites, focusing on the introduction and incorporation (or otherwise) of technologies in medical education. Through the rich case of doctors-in-training, this historical-anthropological study aims to address a key challenge in social scientific scholarship regarding how technologies are implicated in bodily, sensory knowing of the world. 

Starting date: preferably 1st November 2017

Symptômes et traitements de l'ambition

Ambition: symptoms and treatments during the early 19th century 

Lecture by Javier Moscoso (Spanish National Research Council) 

The next lunchtime seminar of the Centre of the History for the Emotions will take place on Wednesday May 24 at 1pm in 6.02 Graduate Centre, QMUL, Mile End. Please note the change in room and date from original advertisements.

Javier Moscoso (Spanish National Research Council) will give a paper titled 'Ambition: symptoms and treatments during the early 19th century'.

Abstract

This presentation wants to contribute a small chapter to the general history of the human passions. My aims are triple: first, I would like to touch on the cultural significance of ambition during the early 19th century, understanding ambition as both a dangerous sentiment and a pathological passion. Secondly, I would like to call your attention on some of the physical and moral treatments of ambition that were explicitly or implicitly considered at the time. These will take us to explore some of the remedies prescribed in the institutions for the mentally ill, of course, but also in many other environments. Since ambition was thought to lie at the very core of recent political events, the French Restoration produced a very significant number of treatises that included very often recommendations to avoid, regulate, or restrain immoderate passionate states. From treatises on military life to tourist guides, I would like to explain not only the cultural forms in which certain bodily changes could be felt, expressed, repressed or conceptualised, but the way in which those same emotions and passions could shed some light on wider cultural phenomena.

All talks are free, booking not needed. Lunch will be provided.

The talk will take place in room 6.02, Graduate Centre, Mile End Campus, London E1 4NS. For directions to Mile End and a campus map, see bit.ly/QMcampusmap.

Histoire des soins palliatifs

A History of Palliative Care, 1500-1970: Concepts, Practices, and Ethical challenges



Michael Stolberg 


Series: Philosophy and Medicine (Book 123)
Hardcover: 219 pages
Publisher: Springer; 1st ed. 2017 edition (April 29, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-3319541778


This book on the history of palliative care, 1500-1970 traces the historical roots of modern palliative care in Europe to the rise of the hospice movement in the 1960s. The author discusses largely forgotten premodern concepts like cura palliativa and euthanasia medica and describes, how patients and physicians experienced and dealt with terminal illness. He traces the origins of hospitals for incurable and dying patients and follows the long history of ethical debates on issues like truth-telling and the intentional shortening of the dying patients’ lives and the controversies they sparked between physicians and patients. An eye opener for anyone interested in the history of ethical decision making regarding terminal care of critically ill patients.

Les substances médicales

Medicinal Substances – Historical and Geographical Aspects


Workshop


Wednesday, June 14, 2017

University Library, Braunschweig, Universitätsplatz 1


The history of medicine is rich in accounts of the use of medicinal substances. Usually, research projects in this field either focus on a certain region or on a certain time period. To date, few accounts cross the borders of cultures, periods and languages. The understanding of this issue is a priority for scholars who are working on the history of both medicine and medicinal substances. This workshop aims at being the starting point for historical work from multiple perspectives on the medical and pharmaceutical use of different therapeutical substances from antiquity to Early Modern times. 
The workshop is devided into two sections:

▪▪ In the first, “multi-regional” section, we will cover a wide geographical range, from the Chinese empire to Europe during the Ottoman era; discussions will focus on the mapping of materia medica in Chinese sources, the new iatrochemistry in the Ottoman era, and finally the understanding and classifying of historical drugs in Europe.

▪▪ The second, Arabic section will shed light on the Arabic civilization, an important stage in the global history of the development of medicine; the talks in this section will correspond to two of the three main classification categories used by physicians in this period, namely herbs and minerals. Here, the discussion will go deeper into the relationship between stones and alchemy, and the theory and practice of substituting herbal components in Arabic medicine.

This workshop will provide an essential platform for understanding the usage of medicinal substances in multiple historical periods, geographical regions, and civilizations.

Histoire mondiale de la silicose

Silicosis: A World History 

Paul-André Rosental 


Hardcover: 296 pages
Publisher: Johns Hopkins University Press; 1 edition (April 11, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1421421551

Despite the common perception that "black lung" has been relegated to the dustbin of history, silicosis remains a crucial public health problem that threatens millions of people around the world. This painful and incurable chronic disease, still present in old industrial regions, is now expanding rapidly in emerging economies around the globe. Most industrial sectors―including the metallurgical, glassworking, foundry, stonecutting, building, and tunneling industries―expose their workers to lethal crystalline silica dust. Dental prosthodontists are also at risk, as are sandblasters, pencil factory workers in developing nations, and anyone who handles concentrated sand squirt to clean oil tanks, build ships, or fade blue jeans.

In Silicosis, eleven experts argue that silicosis is more than one of the most pressing global health concerns today―it is an epidemic in the making. Essays explain how the understanding of the disease has been shaken by new medical findings and technologies, developments in industrializing countries, and the spread of the disease to a wide range of professions beyond coal mining. Examining the global reactions to silicosis, the authors trace the history of the disease and show how this occupational health hazard first came to be recognized as well as the steps that were necessary to deal with it at that time.

Adopting a global perspective, Silicosis offers comparative insights into a variety of different medical and political strategies to combat silicosis. It also analyzes the importance of transnational processes―carried on by international organizations and NGOs and sparked by waves of migrant labor―which have been central to the history of silicosis since the early twentieth century. Ultimately, by bringing together historians and physicians from around the world, Silicosis pioneers a new collective method of writing the global history of disease. Aimed at legal and public health scholars, physicians, political economists, social scientists, historians, and all readers concerned by labor and civil society movements in the contemporary world, this book contains lessons that will be applicable not only to people working on combating silicosis but also to people examining other occupational diseases now and in the future.

Poste d'assistant de recherche à l'Université de Bristol

Research Associate post, University of Bristol

Call for applications

The University-funded project Better by Design: Towards a Sensory History of the Modern Hospital invites applications to a fixed-funded (12 months), part-time (0.3 FTE) Research Associate position.
Can sensory history provide new insights into spaces of physical illness and recovery? How have cultural, individual and medical concerns historically shaped experiences of sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touch in hospital environments? This project will explore these questions, focusing on modern British hospitals. It will examine how emerging research on the senses fed into healthcare design and hospital life, and how patients/staff/visitors experienced and gave meaning to these design decisions. In 2017-18 the Principal Investigator (Dr Victoria Bates) will conduct research on the theory, practice and lived experience of sensory ‘design for health’ in hospitals since 1945. During this time the PI, with the support of the person appointed as Research Associate, will also explore future directions for the project with particular attention to methodological innovation, geographical scope and/or time frame, and public engagement opportunities. Overall, the project will establish the ways in which a sensory approach can shed light on historical relationships between health and environment, as a basis both for discrete outputs and further funding applications.
The successful candidate will need to have secured a PhD degree, even if the formal award of the degree has not yet been made, by the date of appointment (1 August 2017). They will be expected to support the whole project, rendering assistance to Dr Victoria Bates in finding sources, discussing ideas, reviewing relevant literature, organizing workshops, supporting social media, and writing grant applications. They may be expected to conduct a literature review and contribute to a jointly authored publication with workshop participants.

Une histoire de l'orthopédie pédiatrique

Une histoire de l'orthopédie pédiatrique


Sous la direction de R. Kohler 


Editeur : SAURAMPS MEDICAL
ISBN 10 : 9791030300994


La Société Française d'Orthopédie Pédiatrique (SOFOP) fête en 2017 ses 40 ans. Notre Société a souhaité, pour cette occasion, éditer un livre anniversaire ayant pour thème « l'histoire de l'orthopédie pédiatrique ». Quoi de plus passionnant en effet que de pouvoir se retourner vers le passé et d'observer les progrès réalisés? Ce livre étudie l'histoire des pathologies auxquelles nous sommes quotidiennement confrontés : traumatologie, scoliose, pied bot, inégalités de longueur des membres inférieurs, luxation congénitale de la hanche, tumeurs osseuses, handicap, etc. On pourra ainsi mesurer, au fil des chapitres, le cheminement des pensées depuis la reconnaissance de ces affections jusqu'aux progrès actuels ; de grands noms de l'orthopédie apparaissent ici et là, qui ont fait cette histoire. Certaines idées se sont avérées géniales -d'autres moins- mais le mérite de tous ces médecins, plus ou moins anonymes, aura été de vouloir progresser pour apporter toujours plus de confort et de guérisons aux enfants malades. Ainsi ce survol est-il une belle leçon d'humilité !

Les auteurs viennent d'horizons très différents : certains exercent en France, d'autres en Suisse, au Canada ou aux USA. Ils nous font partager leur vision de cette histoire, avec le recul rendu possible par leur expertise et leur expérience des sujets abordés. La coordination de l'ouvrage a été assurée par un lyonnais féru d'histoire de notre spécialité, Rémi Kohler, Professeur honoraire d'orthopédie pédiatrique ; il a suivi de près cette véritable épopée, récente, au cours de laquelle sont d'ailleurs nées les principales sociétés savantes consacrées à cette « hyperspécialité » (SOFOP, EPOS, POSNA) . Nous le remercions vivement d'avoir mené à bien ce travail de mémoire.

Séminaire atlantique conjoint d'histoire de la médecine

Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine

Call For Papers

Johns Hopkins University
October 13-14, 2017


The Johns Hopkins University Institute for the History of Medicine is pleased to host the 15th Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine, October 13-14, 2017 in Baltimore.

JASMed is convened annually for the presentation of research by young scholars working on the history of medicine and public health. The meeting was founded in 2002 to foster a collegial intellectual community that provides a forum for sharing and critiquing graduate research.

We welcome student presentations on any topic and time period and especially hope to receive submissions that speak to this year’s theme, “Truth, Power, and Objectivity in the History of Medicine.” As Bruno Latour cautioned in his 2004 essay “Why has critique run out of steam? From matters of fact to matters of concern,” by demonstrating the lack of scientific certainty and socially constructed nature of facts in their work, historians of science, medicine, and technology are at risk of potentiating the arguments of political extremists, such as climate change skeptics or HIV denialists. This theme directs our attention to the ways in which historians of medicine both establish truths and call them into question. Broadly conceived, the theme highlights questions of perspective and power, including the intersections of race, gender, class, sexuality, and disability. It also invites us to critically consider methodological issues in the field, such as which actors get voices in our narratives, how sources can be used to emphasize or obscure different viewpoints, how evidence and authority are mobilized and balanced, and how claims of objectivity in the medical and scientific discourses influence both our scholarship and the ways it is interpreted.

We encourage submissions from a wide range of scholarly disciplines and are eager to hear new voices in the history of medicine and allied fields. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words and clearly convey the argument, sources, and relationship to existing literature of the paper to be presented. Please submit an abstract no later than June 15, 2017 to jashistofmed.wordpress.com/submit.

Registration for the conference is free and will open in September 2017. If you have any questions, please be in touch via email at jashistofmed@gmail.com. We look forward to welcoming you to Baltimore this fall! — Heidi Morefield, on behalf of 2017 JASMed Steering Committee

Les recherches médicales et raciales de nazis

From Clinic to Concentration Camp: Reassessing Nazi Medical and Racial Research, 1933-1945 

Paul Weindling (Editor)


Series: The History of Medicine in Context
Hardcover: 392 pages
Publisher: Routledge; 1 edition (May 10, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1472484611


Representing a new wave of research and analysis on Nazi human experiments and coerced research, the chapters in this volume deliberately break from a top-down history limited to concentration camp experiments under the control of Himmler and the SS. Instead the collection positions extreme experiments (where research subjects were taken to the point of death) within a far wider spectrum of abusive coerced research. The book considers the experiments not in isolation but as integrated within wider aspects of medical provision as it became caught up in the Nazi war economy, revealing that researchers were opportunistic and retained considerable autonomy. The sacrifice of so many prisoners, patients and otherwise healthy people rounded up as detainees raises important issues about the identities of the research subjects: who were they, how did they feel, how many research subjects were there and how many survived? This underworld of the victims of the elite science of German medical institutes and clinics has until now remained a marginal historical concern. Jews were a target group, but so were gypsies/Sinti and Roma, the mentally ill, prisoners of war and partisans. By exploring when and in what numbers scientists selected one group rather than another, the book provides an important record of the research subjects having agency, reconstructing responses and experiential narratives, and recording how these experiments – iconic of extreme racial torture – represent one of the worst excesses of Nazism.

Les valeurs des vaccins

Vaccines: Values, Present and Past

Call for papers

Workshop
Uppsala 23–24 Nov. 2017


Vaccines, their practices, and means of production, are a historically contested field in which different values, experiences, needs, risks, rights and demands from individuals, public authorities, industries and other institutions have recurrently both clashed and coincided in the joint production of the common good: the protection of whole populations from diseases. But what comes to count as good principles for valuing vaccine research, production and vaccination practices?

This workshop brings together researchers who conduct critical work on the diverging values in the world of vaccines and vaccination. Questions of interest for this meeting are:

What comes to count as respectable grounds for producing vaccines and implementing, or resisting, vaccination programs?

Who comes to decide what is a legitimate risk, and what is an ethical practice of vaccination; how?

What is population health worth in terms of the instrumentalization of human and non-human bodies in the production and testing of vaccines?

How do people’s experiences of vaccines come to be taken into account, or silenced?

What values—ethical, economic, or others—are competing, interacting or being performed? By which actors, grounded in which experiences and in which relations of power?


We welcome participants who wish to present work on the conflicted values and ethics of vaccine production and vaccination. We welcome perspectives from history, anthropology, sociology, gender studies, science and technology studies, and other relevant critical fields.

Abstracts for papers of 200-300 words should be submitted no later than June 9, 2017, to Morag Ramsey, morag.ramsey@idehist.uu.se .

Please provide your full name, institutional affiliation, and contact details. The format of the workshop will not allow for more than c. 15 papers. We will evaluate the abstracts based on the originality of the research and the relevance to the theme of the workshop. By the end of June, applicants will be notified if their papers have been accepted or not. The conference language is English.

The workshop will be two full days, i.e. morning to late afternoon, November 23–24, 2017. Registration, lunches, conference dinner and accommodation (two nights at the conference hotel) are free of charge for participants presenting papers. It will also be possible to obtain limited economic support for travel expenses. Please indicate in the application if such support is required for attendance and what level of support is needed.

If you would like to attend without a paper, the deadline for application is also June 9, 2017. For those interested, please indicate your reasons for wanting to take part in the workshop. Please note that only attendees who present a paper are eligible for economic support.


This workshop is organized by the research program “Medicine at the Borders of Life: Fetal Research and the Emergence of Ethical Controversy”, funded by the Swedish Research Council and hosted by the Department of History of Science and Ideas at Uppsala University (http://medicalborders.se/).

Sport, culture physique et féminité

Mujeres en movimiento. Deporte, cultura física y feminidades. Argentina 1870-1980  

Pablo Scharagrodsky



Promoteo editorial
ISBN: 978-987-574-806-4
354 páginas


La participación femenina en los deportes siempre ha sido controversial. Tras una invisibilidad inicial de las mujeres en los estudios de los deportes en América Latina, en años recientes varios investigadores/as han comenzado a prestarle atención al tema. Las experiencias de las mujeres, de las que durante un largo período se ha hecho caso omiso, están haciéndose oír dentro de un discurso históricamente masculino. Incluso historiadores del fútbol, probablemente considerado durante décadas como una de las actividades deportivas más masculinas, reconocen ahora la importancia de este juego para las mujeres sudamericanas desde una etapa temprana.

Les relations du sport à la santé

Monde du sport, monde de la santé : quelles relations, quels croisements ? 


Appel à communications


Paris, 16 et 17 novembre 2017 

Colloque organisé par Hélène Joncheray (SEP, EA 7370, INSEP & TEC, EA 3625, Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité) et Yannick Le Hénaff (Dysolab, EA 7476, Université de Rouen), avec le soutien de l’Association Française de Sociologie (AFS). 

La pratique sportive est fréquemment présentée comme un vecteur de santé. Les politiques publiques, mais aussi le monde médical, associatif et sportif, confortent cette appréciation, et encouragent à travers force dispositifs une activité physique à visée sanitaire. Citons parmi les plus récents en France, l'amendement « Sport-Santé sur ordonnance » en 2015, le Plan National Sport Santé Bien-Etre lancé en 2013, le Programme National Nutrition Santé 2011-2015, le Plan Obésité 2010-2013, etc. Parallèlement émergent des voix plus dissonantes, sans doute moins audibles, pour dénoncer ou au moins questionner ces liens d'évidence entre sport et santé. Les abus de la pratique intensive, l'accidentologie, les conduites dopantes, ou bien encore les « conduites à risque », parmi d'autres, sont ainsi pointés. Ces rapprochements entre sport et santé au sens large (voire bien-être) méritent d'être questionnés par le regard sociologique. Tout comme, méritent d'être interrogés, plus largement, les croisements et rapports entre les mondes du sport et de la santé. 

Ce colloque se présente ainsi comme un espace où la diversité des thématiques et des approches sera envisagée. Sans prétendre couvrir l’intégralité du spectre de discussions, quatre axes peuvent ici être déclinés : 1) Santé des sportifs, parcours des sportifs, 2) Territoires et dynamiques professionnels, 3) Les usages des pratiques physiques dans le monde de la santé, 4) Les dimensions politiques des rapprochements sport santé. 

Santé des sportifs, parcours des sportifs (Axe 1) 
Outil de travail pour les sportifs de haut niveau, le corps est au centre d’attentions médico-sportives multiples. Néanmoins, loin de se cantonner aux meilleurs athlètes, la prise en compte des questions de santé apparaît comme une dimension centrale pour la plupart des pratiquants. Dans un monde où les activités physiques et sportives redeviennent vecteur de bien-être, la performance physique stricte n’est plus seule au coeur de la pratique. Un nouveau référentiel normatif semble se mettre en place et soulève de nombreuses questions, parmi lesquelles la place du bien-être, dans les pratiques comme pour les individus. Désormais, l’objectif est de parvenir au bien-être par la maîtrise, le contrôle et la coordination du corps. Dès lors, la notion de performance ne disparaît pas totalement mais prend une nouvelle forme. 

Cet axe vise l'ensemble des pratiquants dans leur rapport au corps et à la santé, tout au long de leur pratique incluant les périodes de blessures, leur prévention et leur prise en charge. Les questionnements autour de la manière dont les institutions sportives prennent en compte ces dimensions sont également centrales ici. 

Territoires et dynamiques professionnels (Axe 2) 
Les territoires des professionnels de la santé, du sport, comme ceux qui se trouvent à l'intersection de ces deux mondes, sont traversés de mouvements récents ou plus anciens. L'avènement de nouvelles formations (la filière Activités Physiques Adaptées et Santé, en Sciences et Techniques des Activités Physiques et Sportives, par exemple) participe de ces mouvements, tout comme certaines mesures qui ont directement impacté les pratiques professionnelles. De nouveaux faisceaux de tâches, segments, voire professionnels, émergent ou évoluent, rendant visibles ou engageant des luttes de territoires. On pense ici en particulier, mais non exclusivement, aux masseurs-kinésithérapeutes et aux titulaires des Brevets d'Etat d'éducateur sportif. Ces dynamiques interrogent également le travail en train de se faire, dans ses logiques comme dans les activités de coordination, d’ajustement ou de délégation. 

On peut aussi légitimement s'interroger sur la prise en compte de ces questions de santé dans la formation et la pratique des professionnels du sport et sur les différentes conceptions de la santé mobilisées, mais également les rapports que ces derniers entretiennent avec les professionnels de la santé, et inversement. 

Les usages des pratiques physiques dans une finalité de santé (Axe 3) 
De nombreuses campagnes et dispositifs incitent à la pratique physique, que ce soit auprès de la population générale, ou envers des publics cibles, considérés comme vulnérables ou « à risques ». On pense en particulier, mais pas exclusivement, aux malades chroniques, dont le rapport au corps et à la santé est le plus souvent modifié, si ce n'est bouleversé, avec l'arrivée de la maladie, ou bien encore aux personnes âgées. Mais également aux travailleurs, dont la santé grâce aux activités physiques et sportives, face aux risques psychosociaux, devient un enjeu sociétal. Dans ce contexte incitatif à l'activité physique, les logiques sous-tendant la pratique méritent d'être interrogées, en rapport notamment à la production d'une normativité médicale et d'un nouveau rapport au corps. Selon toute vraisemblance, ces engagements (re)produisent en outre différentes formes d’inégalités sociales. 

L'appropriation - ou non - de cette incitation à la pratique physique dans le cadre des institutions de santé et parmi les professionnels de santé, voire par délégation au monde associatif, sera également prise en compte. 

Les dimensions politiques des rapprochements sport santé (Axe 4) 
Ce dernier axe est transversal aux trois autres, dans le sens où il intègre les différentes thématiques par le prisme de l'action publique. Seront ici, pêle-mêle, envisagés les héritages socio-historiques, les constructions sociales et les mises sur agenda, la construction de catégories politiques et plus largement les politiques touchant à la thématique sport santé, dans leurs dimensions locales et plus globales. Les analyses des dispositifs comme des controverses trouveront ici toute leur place. 

Les axes présentés offrent un cadre indicatif. Les propositions de communication doivent être transmises aux organisateurs au plus tard le 3 juillet 2017

Hélène Joncheray : helene.joncheray@insep.fr 

Yannick Le Hénaff : yannick.le-henaff@univ-rouen.fr

Jules et Augusta Dejerine

Passion neurologie. Jules et Augusta Dejerine

Michel Fardeau


Qui dit couple, en science, pense aussitôt aux physiciens Pierre et Marie Curie. 

Il faut désormais leur adjoindre leurs contemporains neurobiologistes Jules et Augusta Dejerine, dont les travaux scientifiques sont indissociables. Alors que Jules se consacre surtout aux études cliniques, c’est Augusta, première femme reçue à l’internat des hôpitaux de Paris, qui assure tout le travail de laboratoire. 

Mais la jeune émigrée américaine d’origine polonaise, ardente féministe de surcroît, ne peut espérer d’autres honneurs que l’estime de ses collègues, à une époque où les femmes de science se comptent sur les doigts d’une main. 

Après sa thèse de médecine, elle se consacre entièrement à un projet d’une ampleur hors du commun : l’analyse du cerveau en coupes sériées, leur coloration et leur examen au microscope, dont résulte une nouvelle Anatomie des centres nerveux (1901) qui a aussitôt, par sa précision et ses qualités graphiques, un retentissement international. Jules Dejerine, lui, finit par occuper la chaire de Jean-Martin Charcot, à la Salpêtrière, mais ses publications mettent en cause bien des affirmations du maître, ce qui le placera longuement en marge du milieu académique et médical parisien.

Une grande histoire d’amour et de science que Michel Fardeau conte ici avec une passion contagieuse. 

Michel Fardeau est directeur de recherche émérite au CNRS et professeur honoraire au CNAM. Il a été le premier directeur médical et scientifique de l’Institut de myologie créé par l’Association française contre les myopathies, à l’hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière. Il a publié L’Homme de chair, qui a été un grand succès.
