Event Profile
Health Conference 2010 will bring together the most influential scholars working in the fields of sociology, history of medicine, politics of bioethics, and critical theory to discuss the prominent, normative role of health today. The event will provide a platform which will cover the full spectrum of the role played by health in the current society, and the challenges it is creating. There will be several groups for plenary lectures from key note speakers and papers presentation by conference participants. They will debate on topics such as How does health and well being discourse define us as human beings?, How does the normal differs from the pathological in these discourses?, How does the sociology of the body and the way we reflect upon diseases connect to neoliberal thinking?, How do technologies of health differ from other technologies of subjectification?, And are we all becoming somatic individuals?
The conference will cover the following topics:
  • Health as religion: the normative role of health in contemporary Western societies
  • The politics of bioethics: bio-medicine, neo-liberalism and health
  • Health care professionals, patients, citizens and the re-organizing of private and public domains
  • Identity formation in health discourses: the sick body as object and subject of regulation
