Dear colleagues,

We are very happy to invite you to the first session of the "ECOBIOSOCIAL COMPLEXITIES: ENCOUNTERS, CRITIQUES, INTEGRATIONS" international seminar series. We will welcome Prof Roberta Raffaeta (Ca' Foscari University of Venice) for a talk entitled: What kind of object is the microbiome? (summary below)

The sessions will take place Wednesday, November 9, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm (please note that there has been a change in the schedule) in GEO-2215 and online here: More information on the website of the STS Lab @UNIL: We look forward to seeing you there !

Luca Chiapperino, Francesco Panese and Ccile Fasel

What kind of object is the microbiome? My presentation will discuss a specific field within post-genomics, that is microbiome research. Microbiome research is reconfiguring practices and ideas of health. The argument of my presentation will be that before speculating about the microbiome and about how it modifies health, society and social theory, it is important to understand which kind of object is the microbiome. Paying attention to that allows us to appreciate its impact on health concepts and practices.
