MUSTS Colloquium: Making Sense of Medicine, and an Edited Book

November 9, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Making Sense of Medicine, and an Edited Book

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


Making sense of medicine and making edited books: these will be the topics of this colloquia celebrating the recent publication of a MUSTS member heavy edited book called Making Sense of Medicine. 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, advisors, 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 advisors 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.

The colloquium will immediately be followed by free drinks and borrel at Thiessens, courtesy of the ERC/Making Clinical Sense project. The venue would request that you please RSVP to Anna – a[dot]harris[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl- if you will be attending no later than 2nd Nov.
