Vereniging voor Filosofie en Geneeskunde (VFG): Dutch-Flemish association for Philosophy and Medicine. Since 2013, I am a board member of this association. I’m organizing, together with Ignaas Devisch, its annual conference in 2014, which will take place November 15, Leiden University Medical Center.
June 19-20, 2014 I attended the Future of the Body Conference in the Trinity Long Room Hub at Trinity College, Dublin. Part of the conference’s program was a performance by ORLAN at Dublin’s Art Gallery. Here is a video of her performance (with a question by yours truly at 1.13.04 in this video)
Somatosphere is a very interesting collaborative website on body and embodiement issues. It covers the intersections of medical anthropology, science and technology studies, cultural psychiatry, psychology and bioethics.
