With pervasive digitalization of everyday activities, our social, professional and political life now unfold under new conditions. All forms of digitally mediated activity potentially generate data and that data can be exchanged on the platforms facilitating the activity. It has led some scholars to talk about the emergence of a platform society. The platform society potentially transgresses national boundaries and create new global data flows – but not all data flow freely, and different national and supranational regimes are emerging and they demarcate data use differently. If the Internet was once said to make all information equally accessible for all, we today know that new forms of data divides are developing. As data gain commercial value, they become guarded by trade secrets and both commercial, political and national security interests generate new divisions between those with access and those without.
The new data divides influence how data is produced and used. This seminar investigates the political economy of health data in light of the new division of data access. Old distinctions between health data and other data seem to be emerging and others eroding. If health data used to be seen as particularly sensitive and guarded by special rules in various jurisdictions, it is today the platform as much as the nature of the information that determines the level of sensitivity – and in some jurisdictions whether they even count as health data. There is a need to understand better the emerging global political economy of health data and to explore how global variations create very different power effects and involve very different potentials for data subjects and data users.
The seminar compares data infrastructures in different geospheres by pursuing the following cross-cutting themes of comparison:
Which actors build, control and use the data infrastructures for healthcare and health-related research?
What counts as health data? Are they guarded or defined in any particular way?
When infrastructural platforms are used for health data exchange, how are they then connected and which geographical ties do they involve?
How do technical, economic, regulatory and geographical features affect the purposes to which data are put and by whom?
How do policymakers construe and engage the affected publics?
· Participation in the seminar is free, but registration is required. Details will be announced in January, 2020
· The seminar will take place on August 24, 2020, at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark
· Funded by Australian Research Council and the European Research Council

CONFERENCE - Health and health care in Europe. Between inequalities and new opportunities
17-19 June 2020, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland
Call for Papers
After successful conferences in Lisbon (2016) and Torino (2018), the Mid-term Conference of the Research Network of Sociology of Health and Illness, European Sociological Association (ESA RN16) will be hosted by Jagiellonian University, the oldest university in Poland. In magical Kraków we will undoubtedly enjoy a fruitful, academically inspiring and engaging conference. We will have a comfortable conference venue, delicious and healthy cuisine, beautiful historical monuments, nice hotel base and a friendly, supportive atmosphere. We plan to make the conference full of inspiring presentations, relevant discussions and lively networking opportunities. We are planning a Special Issue of a journal from the conference.
The task of policy makers is to reduce inequalities, which means giving everyone the same opportunities to lead a healthy life. But the task for sociologists is to research and explain what does, or could, cause inequalities and to propose solutions. We know that education, employment status, income level, gender and ethnicity and other factors have a great impact on life expectancy and quality of life. In modern Europe all these social factors are fueled by migration, political tribulations and the neoliberal economy. Value crises, risk, and individualism do not help. Developments in medicine, in medical technology and biotechnology, new treatments and new procedures, and many other things which become an opportunity to cure and care, can be a source of further inequalities. That is why involving social science, in particular sociology, in the discourse about health and health care is important.

- Plenary session. Graham Scambler and Zofia Słońska will be our keynote speakers. The title of their presentations will be announced soon.

CONFERENCE - Sexualmedizin und Sexualtherapie
Die diesjährige 6. Wiener Tagung für Interdisziplinäre Psychotherapie behandelt das Thema „Sexualmedizin und Sexualtherapie“ und ist die erste einer Veranstaltungsreihe über Sexualität und Sexualstörungen. Am 6. Juni 2020 folgt die Wiener Frühjahrstagung für Forensische Psychiatrie zum Thema „Sexualität und Gewalt“. Den Abschluss bildet am 7. November 2020 die Wiener Herbsttagung für Transkulturelle Psychiatrie mit dem Schwerpunkt „Sexualität, Sexualstörungen und Kultur“.
Die Beziehung zwischen Sexualmedizin und Sexualtherapie ist vielschichtig und komplex. Beide Fachbereiche stehen nicht in einer unmittelbaren Kausalbeziehung zueinander, sind aber auch nicht unabhängig voneinander zu sehen. Waren es ursprünglich die Gynäkologie und die Andrologie, die wesentliche Beiträge zur Sexualmedizin leisteten, so fanden in den letzten 20 Jahren Sexualstörungen auch in der Psychiatrie, der Psychosomatik und den Neurowissenschaften zunehmend Beachtung. Das Spektrum reicht von systemischen Ansätzen, über emotionsfokussierte Therapien, bis zu körperorientierten Therapieformen.
Inzwischen gehört das anfängliche Ringen von Sexualmedizin und Sexualtherapie um die Deutungshoheit für Verständnis und Behandlung von sexualstörungen weitgehend der Vergangenheit an. Diese interdisziplinär angelegte Tagung will daher einen weiteren Beitrag zur Zusammenarbeit der beiden Fächer leisten, die einem breiteren Publikum vorgestellt werden sollen.
