Report of Culture, Medicine and Power Fall Workshop, November 3rd 2014

The Culture, Medicine and Power (CMP) Research Group held its second Workshop on 3 November 2014. The CMP Fall Workshop was a great success with engaging discussions CMP-Logo-72dpi399x145around and practical feedback for members’ work in progress ranging from conceptualizing the neuropolis, ethics of ambiguity, and nervous systems to Serre’s work on the parasite, models and simulations, chronic diseases, and post-war reconstruction efforts. The main purpose of the workshops is for colleagues in the department to come together for lively discussion and debate while also providing a productive space to advance written work toward publication and wider dissemination.
