Circulations of Knowledges in Digital Medical Applications

Pan­el

The new work­ing alliances raise ques­tions about how knowl­edge is cre­at­ed, trans­lat­ed, passed on, and cre­ate new rela­tion­ships of dependency.

Please find our CfP “Cir­cu­la­tions of Knowl­edges in Dig­i­tal Med­ical Appli­ca­tions”/fSTS (for STS-hub.de 2023) attached. STS-hub.de takes place on March 15th-17th 2023 at Human Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­ter Aachen

Dead­line for abstracts is Octo­ber 16th 2022.

In med­i­cine what is con­sid­ered as knowl­edge is espe­cial­ly con­test­ed because the field great­ly influ­ences knowl­edge in oth­er fields and oth­er fields also influ­ence how and which knowl­edge is con­struct­ed in med­i­cine. We see this in archives of stan­dard­ized knowl­edge that get cir­cu­lat­ed a lot also in oth­er dis­ci­plines, such as brain atlases, anato­my books and the like (con­cep­tu­al­ized by Susan L. Star as bound­ary objects). With new tech­nolo­gies and new dig­i­tal appli­ca­tions also new dis­ci­plines and stake­hold­ers get involved and claim their say. E.g., (bio)medical appli­ca­tions based on arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence are being devel­oped by teams of med­ical and tech­ni­cal experts, ethi­cists, legal advi­sors, and oth­ers, such as it is intend­ed in the ELSI (eth­i­cal legal soci­o­log­i­cal impli­ca­tions) frame­work manda­to­ry for BMBF projects. The new work­ing alliances raise ques­tions about how knowl­edge is cre­at­ed, trans­lat­ed, passed on, and cre­ate new rela­tion­ships of depen­den­cy. Fem­i­nist STS has a long tra­di­tion in crit­i­ciz­ing (hege­mo­ni­al) knowl­edge and analy­ses how knowl­edge is formed (or con­struct­ed), who is involved with which pow­er and which con­se­quences result there­of. By pro­vid­ing impor­tant ana­lyt­i­cal tools to ask about the pro­duc­tion of knowl­edge and its effects, fem­i­nist STS makes an impor­tant crit­i­cal contribution.

This pan­el aims to dis­cuss the cir­cu­la­tion of knowl­edge in/with/and through dig­i­tal med­ical appli­ca­tions from a fem­i­nist STS view. Exam­ples could be the analy­sis of:

-       cir­cu­la­tions of knowl­edge in empir­i­cal stud­ies on inter-/and trans­dis­ci­pli­nary devel­op­ment and appli­ca­tion of such devices;

-       (shift­ing) pow­er hier­ar­chies through the cir­cu­la­tion of knowl­edge in med­ical applications;

-       social inequal­i­ty through dif­fer­ent access to dig­i­tal applications;

-       the role of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary work in the devel­op­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of dig­i­tal med­ical applications

-       the con­se­quences for users and the impor­tance of users in the devel­op­ment of dig­i­tal devices

-       suit­able method­olog­i­cal frame­works for the analy­sis of these cir­cu­la­tions in med­ical appli­ca­tions; and others.

Work and Disability/Chronicity at DGSKA

Pan­el

This pan­el is focused on how peo­ple nav­i­gate dis­abling, debil­i­tat­ing and/or are enabling expe­ri­ences in and through work, and how these expe­ri­ences are shaped by the social local­i­ties from which they emerge.

We are orga­niz­ing a pan­el on work and disability/chronicity at next year’s DGSKA (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sozial- und Kul­tur­an­thro­polo­gie) con­fer­ence in Munich (25–28 July 2023). We hope to cre­ate a plat­form for schol­ars inter­est­ed in how people’s being at/in work relate to expe­ri­ences of dis­abil­i­ty and chronic­i­ty, in par­tic­u­lar in (but not restrict­ed to) con­texts of the Glob­al South. Your con­tri­bu­tions to the pan­el will hope­ful­ly lead to a spe­cial issue that taps into this (neglect­ed) field.

Sub­mis­sions (max. 200 words) should go to stefanie.mauksch@uni-leipzig.de. The Call for Paper runs until 15 Decem­ber 2022. Please con­sid­er sub­mit­ting an abstract and cir­cu­late widely.

Being in/ at Work: Repo­si­tion­ing Knowl­edge about Work, Dis­abil­i­ty, Chronic­i­ty (Work­shop)

Dis­abil­i­ty and chronic­i­ty are terms that seek to cap­ture bioso­cial expe­ri­ences that inter­sect with, and affect, how peo­ple engage in work, labor or employ­ment. This pan­el is focused on how peo­ple nav­i­gate dis­abling, debil­i­tat­ing and/or are enabling expe­ri­ences in and through work, and how these expe­ri­ences are shaped by the social local­i­ties from which they emerge. We place empha­sis on how work becomes sig­nif­i­cant for peo­ple whose bod­i­ly con­di­tions or appear­ances are pro­duced as ‘oth­er’ in respec­tive soci­eties, or who expe­ri­ence pain or chron­ic ill­ness that delim­it (but maybe also reshape or expand) their pos­si­bil­i­ties to con­tribute to com­mu­ni­ties and oth­er social arrange­ments. Depart­ing from the focus on work-relat­ed exclu­sion put for­ward in pre­vi­ous inquiries in anthro­pol­o­gy and relat­ed dis­ci­plines, we attend to pos­i­tive rela­tions between occu­pa­tion­al iden­ti­ties and work embod­i­ments on the one hand, and expe­ri­ences of dis­abil­i­ty and chronic­i­ty on the oth­er. Explor­ing new angles on the inter­play between ‘being dis­abled’ and ‘being in/at work’, we ask whether and how work ‘works’ as a form to aban­don or to prob­lema­tize con­struc­tions of dis­abil­i­ty. The work­shop will bring togeth­er schol­ars who address one or more of the fol­low­ing concerns:

Co-Con­sti­tu­tion: How are forms of dis­abil­i­ty and/or chronic­i­ty defined in con­nec­tion to notions and ideas of work? And vice ver­sa, how do dis­abil­i­ty and chronic­i­ty shape extant forms of labor?

Mean­ing-Mak­ing: How do peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ty and/or chron­ic con­di­tions in dif­fer­ent local­i­ties around the globe per­form and talk about their work?

Cri­tique: How can embed­ded under­stand­ings of dis­abil­i­ty, chronic­i­ty and work be brought to estrange the work­ings of admin­is­tra­tive pro­ce­dures, ide­olo­gies and polit­i­cal arrangements?

Reflec­tion and Auto-Ethnog­ra­phy: To what degree is the labor of anthro­pol­o­gists shaped by ableist con­cep­tions? Which poten­tial does dis­abil­i­ty hold to explore exclu­sion­ary dimen­sions of anthro­po­log­i­cal work?
