Workshop : Medicine, Science and Technology in Argentina. Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Universidad Maimónides
1 June 2011

This workshop is co-organised by Universidad Maimónides (Argentina) and Oxford Brookes University (UK) and aims to bring together a range of researchers working in the intersections of science, technology and medicine from a range of disciplines (history, sociology, health professionals, and communication sciences) and different areas of research (social studies of science and technology, history of medicine, and health and population studies). It is our intention that the workshop will be an occasion to discuss research problems, innovative perspectives and a variety of methodological approaches between senior and early career researchers. With a main focus in Argentina, the workshop will also encourage comparative studies or scientific exchanges in South America, especially between Argentina and Brazil.

Topics for discussion include: – Science, medicine and the state: Public and private initiatives (The state as scientific entrepreneur; Public policies, sanitary campaigns, and healthcare institutions; Private institutes, national and international philanthropy) – Configurations of the biomedical field in Argentina (Experimental medicine, clinical medicine, and social medicine; Scientific and medical specialization; Government, universities, foundations and industry)
