Seminar series "Ecobiosocial Complexities: encounters, critiques, integrations"

Dear colleagues,

This is a friendly reminder about the upcoming iteration of the seminar series "Ecobiosocial Complexities: encounters, critiques, integrations".

Thursday, March 30th: "The Evolution of ACEs: From Coping Behaviors to Epigenetics as Explanatory Models for the Biology of Adverse Childhood Experiences". Ruth Mller, Technische Universitt Mnchen & Martha Kenney, San Francisco State University.

The session will take place from 12pm to 1:30pm at the University of Lausanne (Gopolis building. room 2215) and will be accessible online via Zoom:

The seminars are supported by the International Relations of the University of Lausanne (UNIL), by the Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione project "Constructing the Biosocial" (N.185822) and, for the Spring semester, by the STS Lab @UNIL.

The link to last semester's program is here, and the one for the current semester here.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Luca Chiapperino, Ccile Fasel, Francesco Panese

SERIES ABSTRACT This seminar series falls under the scope of the Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione Project "Constructing the Biosocial: an engaged inquiry into epigenetics and post-genomic biosciences" (N.185822). The series wishes to inaugurate a new phase of research around post-genomics, which both capitalises on ongoing social science research (in different national and international contexts) and puts at the center of this research and its future interdisciplinary perspectives and collaboration. The current global landscape of research in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) is populated by a wealth of studies of the social dimensions of post-genomic life sciences. More specifically, several projects grapple with the turn towards environmental questions and social determinants of health in the life sciences: on the one hand, it is imperative to critically assess and deconstruct these openings in biomedical sciences; on the other hand, it is also crucial to productively take biomedicines interest in the object of social sciences the social as an opportunity for a new wave of collaborative research.

The objective of the seminar series "Ecobiosocial complexities" is to connect the results and research paths of STS scholars working on these matters, and to identify the multiple ways forward of this research for health promotion and society. How can we move from state-of-the-art social science knowledge on the social and environmental turn in post-genomic life sciences to novel epistemic, socio-political and policy approaches to the biological and social determinants of health? What novel avenues of research are needed to achieve this objective? What novel circulations, encounters and integrations of scientific fields can promote biosocial research practices around post-genomics.
