La Asociación Madrileña de Salud Mental (AMSM) organiza este año las Jornadas Nacionales de la Asociación Española de Neuropsiquiatría (AEN) en el Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Médicos de Madrid con el lema “Sujet_s a lo social” . Lo social es el continente inevitable en el que se inscribe el sujeto y en el que se engloban los discursos y la prácticas de la salud mental. Transformar las prácticas y la clínica implica necesariamente pensar en el contexto social, cultural e interpersonal en el que se desarrollan.

El plazo de inscripción y envío de  resúmenes para la presentación de comunicaciones libres está abierto hasta el 23 de abril.

El evento se iniciará con una ponencia del psiquiatra y ensayista Guillermo Rendueles sobre “La psiquiatrización del suicidio: de la sociobiología al DSM.” y concluirá con una conferencia de Fernando Vidal (ICREA, Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats) sobre “¿Por qué “somos nuestro cerebro”? Una perspectiva histórica y cultural”.

El futuro de la Historia de las Ciencias Humanas

Con el propósito de valorar los cambios introducidos en la historia de las ciencias humanas ante el desarrollo de las humanidades médicas, las ciencias biológicas y la teoría literaria y cultural, se celebró este encuentro sobre el futuro de este amplio campo pluridisciplinar, a instancias de la revista History of the Human Sciences y del Dr. Chris Renwick. Reproducimos aquí su post así como los enlaces a las charlas que tuvieron lugar.

“The Future of the History of the Human Sciences” – hosted jointly by History of the Human Sciences and Dr Chris Renwick – saw established scholars and early-career researchers gather in York for a two-day meeting in April 2016. The aim was to consider changes wrought in the broad interdisciplinary field of the history of the human sciences by new developments in the medical humanities, biological sciences, and literary/cultural theory. In so doing, these scholars not only marked the beginning of a new era for History of Human Sciences with a new editorial team, led by Felicity Callard, but also give thanks to the outgoing editor, James Good.

You can find out more about the conference on its website and in the reports on this blog from those who attended. Thanks to the kind permission of many of those who took part, we can now also make available recordings of a number of the talks. Abstracts for each talk can be found here.

• Roger Smith, “Resisting Neurosciences and Sustaining History”

• Steve Fuller, “Kuhn’s Curse and the Crisis of the Human”

• Des Fitzgerald, “The commotion of the social”

• Maurizio Meloni, “The Social as the Non-Biological: Genealogy and Perspectives”

• Jessica Hendy, “Molecular Archives of Human History: Moving Beyond Text-Based Sources”

• Michael A. Finn, “Possibilities and Problems with the Growing Archive”

• Peter Mandler, “The Language of Social Science in Everyday Life: What it Does, How it Circulates, How to Track it”

• Amanda Rees “Biocultural Evolution Then and Now: The Brain in Environmental Context OR Counterfactualising the History of Biology and Sociology”

 

The Future of the History of the Human Sciences

University of York
Thursday 7th & Friday 8th April 2016

This two-day meeting, hosted jointly by Dr Chris Renwick and History of the Human Sciences, gathers together established scholars and early-career researchers to consider changes wrought in the broad interdisciplinary field of the history of the human sciences by new developments in the medical humanities, biological sciences, and literary/cultural theory. Marking the end of James Good’s 15-year tenure as HHS editor and the beginning of a new editorial team, comprising Dr Felicity Callard, Dr Rhodri Hayward, and Dr Angus Nicholls, the meeting will survey the field’s development since the foundation of HHS almost 20 years ago, and offer provocations – from various disciplinary perspectives – about the directions that it might take in the future.

Speakers include Roger Smith, Steve Fuller, Peter Mandler, Marianne Sommer, Amanda Rees, Michael Finn, Elizabeth Toon, Jessica Hendy, Maurizio Meloni, Des Fitzgerald, Alexandra Bacopoulos Viau, and Jonna Brenninkmeijer.

There will be four intensive sessions:

  1. The Problem of the Archive: biological data, digital media, material culture, and their impact upon the archive and human nature;
  2. The Problem of the Human: how the neurosciences are challenging conventional approaches to history;
  3. The Problem of the Social: How do models of ‘the social’ in the life sciences challenge those in the social sciences and humanities?
  4. Practice in the Human Sciences: new methods and approaches in medical humanities and science studies.

These sessions will be followed by a roundtable in which the outgoing and incoming History of the Human Sciences editors, plus speakers from the conference, discuss the state of the field and its future.

In keeping with the field’s history and the future challenges that will be discussed, the conference organisers wish to encourage scholars from a wide range disciplinary backgrounds to participate. Attendance is free but places are limited.

As part of the conference organisers’ commitment to encouraging discussion about the future of the field, six bursaries covering the costs of attending the conference are available for postgraduate students. More information about how to apply for one of these bursaries is available on the postgraduate bursaries page of the conference website.

Further information about the event is available on the conference website.
