MUSTS colloquium ‘Making Sense of Medicine’, on 9 November

MUSTS is organising the colloquium ‘Making Sense of Medicine, and an Edited Book‘. It celebrates the recent publication of ‘Making Sense of Medicine‘, a MUSTS member heavy edited book.

When: 9 November, 15.30-17.00
Where: On-campus (GG80-82 Attic)
Contributors present: John Nott, Anna Harris, Paul Craddock, Candida F. Sánchez Burmester, Harro van Lente and Sally Wyatt
Discussants: Bernike Pasveer, Ike Kamphof, Jenny Slatman and Jessica Mesman

The book explores the materiality of how medical knowledge is reproduced, with a focus on the objects and places that offer guidance to novices in the field. The book comes out of the MUSTS research project Making Clinical Sense and has been a creative and collaborative effort between authors in the project team, advisers, colleagues in our field sites and in our research fields, and with the publication house. The book is somewhat experimental in form, and in true STS-style pays careful attention to its modes of ordering.

The colloquia will begin with short reflections from the four local advisers of the Making Clinical Sense project, then continue with a discussion among authors present about the making of the book, especially the experiments conducted and lessons learned while making an edited book, before opening up to Q&A.
