SYMPOSIUM - The Body and the Built Environment in the Long Nineteenth Century

Andere

The period between 1750 and 1918 is widely acknowledged to have been one of dramatic societal and cultural change, not least in terms of people’s experience of the spaces in which they lived. The unparalleled urbanisation that took place over the course of the long nineteenth century necessitated new ways of existing in increasingly built up environments. The move to such locations demanded new habits, routines, and modes of movement, all of which had a discernible impact on the body. As Elizabeth Grosz points out, ‘through exercise and habitual patterns of movement, through negotiating its environment whether this be rural or urban […] [that] the body is more or less marked, constituted as appropriate, or, as the case may be, an inappropriate body for its cultural requirements’ (1994). Where, for example, the navigation of uneven rural terrain would have strengthened certain muscles, the negotiation of flat, urban streets produced a markedly different body. Beyond the purely muscular level, the countless cultural elements of the nineteenth century city also impacted in numerous ways upon the embodied subject.

This one-day interdisciplinary symposium invites papers that explore how the shifting relationship between the body and the built environment was interrogated in literature and culture of the long nineteenth century. The symposium aims to stimulate academic discussion on a range of topics relating to embodiment and architectural space in the period ranging from 1750-1920. As such, we welcome papers from those working in the fields of Literature, History, Medical Humanities, Geography, Architecture, Philosophy, Film and Media, Psychology, Modern Languages, Gender/Women’s Studies, Law, and Politics.

Paper topics might include, but are not limited to, considerations of: questions of ownership and access; health; urban planning; agoraphobia and other spatially related disorders; sensory perception; the diseased body; policing, surveillance, and public order/disorder; sanitation and pollution; and phenomenological approaches to the body and space.

Potential research questions might include:

-        In what ways did the built environment either encourage or preclude access to certain kinds of bodies in the long nineteenth century?

-        How was the relationship between the embodied subject and architectural space interrogated in literature and culture of the period?

-        What impact did scientific and medical advances in the understanding of the human body have on the construction and/or organisation of the built environment?

Please send abstracts of 250 words for 20-minute papers to: bodybuiltenvironment@gmail.com by 17 May 2019. For further details, visit: http://bodybuiltenvironment.wordpress.com

 

This event is supported by the Centre for Nineteenth Century Studies, and is presented in association with the Institute for Medical Humanities at Durham University.

WORKSHOP - Mamacura: überliefertes Gesundheitswissen von Frauen

Andere

WERKSTATT ETHNOLOGIE BERLIN E.V.GEMEINNÜTZIG

Einladung zum dritten Workshop der Reihe „Partizip aktiv“

Mamacura – überliefertes Gesundheitswissen von Frauen
Caroline Contentin el Masri, Gesundheits- und Krankenpflegerin und M.A.S.K.A. im

Bereich Medizinethnologie

Dr. Annette Kerckhoff, BSc Komplementärmedizin & European Master of Health Promotion

in Anwesenheit von Stadtteilmüttern

Auf der ganzen Welt helfen Frauen sich mit einer „Medizin aus der Küche“, um die Familie gesund zu erhalten und Krankheiten selbst zu behandeln oder die ärztliche Behandlung zu unterstützen. Dabei handelt es sich um einen wertvollen Wissensschatz, der zu mehr Autonomie und Gesundheitskompetenz führt.

Als Erweiterung der 2012 angefangenen Zusammenarbeit mit der Werkstatt Ethnologie Berlin und den Stadtteilmüttern von Neukölln im Rahmen der Ausstellung „Sibyllenwurz und Speisedampf“ und einer Feldforschung zum Thema Vorstellungen von „gesunder Ernährung“ sammeln wir Rezepte, prüfen sie medizinisch und - da diese Praxis auch sozial und kulturelle Aspekte der Gesunderhaltung im ganzheitlichen Sinne beeinflusst -, beforschen wir anthropologisch den Kontext ihrer Nutzung. Ziel ist, geprüfte Rezepte und weitere Informationen über das Internet weltweit für andere Frauen zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Im Workshop wollen wir uns über unsere Erfahrungen austauschen, es werden Ergebnisse der Forschung und praktische Anwendungen für den Alltag präsentiert, die in einem zweiten Schritt durch praktische Übungen (beim schönen Wetter im Freien) zusammen erweitert werden.

WORKSHOP - Bioethics and Human Temporality. Perspectives from the Beginning, Middle and End of Life

Andere

Date: 27-28.5.2019
Venue: Schlaues Haus Oldenburg

Organizers:

Prof. Dr. Mark Schweda

Dr. Nitzan Rimon-Zarfaty
(University Medical Center Göttingen, Dept. of Medical Ethics and History of Medicine)

The role of temporality in bioethical debates has long been neglected: What does it mean for bioethical reasoning that life is lived, experienced, and understood as a process in time with fundamental temporal characteristics such as directedness, irreversibility, or finality? What does it mean that life is traditionally interpreted in terms of a particular temporal structure and extension, including a sequence of phases or stages connected to different social roles, norms and expectations? What does it mean that certain medical interventions and accompanying moral questions and conflicts focus on particular points in life?

The lack of reflection on the relevance of human temporality becomes particularly salient in ethical discussions at the beginning and end of life. Many bioethical discussions on the beginning of life rest on moral assumptions about the development of humanexistence over time. An example are the debates on prenatal diagnosis and abortion and the underlying models of phases of fetal development, or the bioethical discussions on informed consent and proxy decision making in the treatment of neonates.Bioethical debates on reproduction also exemplify the importance of temporality. For example, the common metaphor of the "biological clock" encompasses concerns about (reproductive) ageing and the finality of women's reproduction. Finally, medical interventions in the fields of geriatric medicine and biogerontology promote more ambitious standards of health, fitness, and functionality for later life and challenge common views of aging and the life course.

This international and interdisciplinary workshop is dedicated to the role and relevance of temporality for ethical reasoning in the field of biomedicine, healthcare, and the life sciences at the beginning, middle and end of life. It aims to develop a more concrete, empirically informed and culturally sensitive perspective on bioethics and human temporality. Talks by Claudia Bozzaro (Freiburg), Nolwenn Bühler (Lausanne/Neuchâtel), Limor Meoded Danon (Jerusalem), Jozef Dorscheidt (Groningen), Naomi Gershoni (Beer-Sheva), Solveig Lena Hansen (Göttingen), Julia Perry (Göttingen), Nitzan Rimon-Zarfaty (Göttingen), Ari Schick (Jerusalem), Mark Schweda (Oldenburg) & Karin Jongsma (Utrecht) (for program, see https://uol.de/medizinethik/workshop-bioethics-and-human-temporality/).
