We are delighted to announce the next SSHM Work In Progress Seminar with Courtney Addison, titled “Spliced: Boundary-work and the establishment of human gene therapy”.
When: 430 pm, Tuesday June 2nd
Where: Room 3.1.1, East Wing, King’s Buuilding
Courtney Addison is a PhD candidate at the University of Copenhagen, working in the field of medical anthropology.
Her doctoral research investigates the social and ethical aspects of human gene therapy, an experimental medical field that at present occurs largely in clinical trial settings. Courtney is interested in using ethnographic approaches and work around ‘ordinary ethics’ to problematise bioethical reasoning; in questions of routine and experiment as they relate to knowledge-making; and in the problems and possibilities that arise between actors in different positions of power and expertise. Courtney is pursuing these interests through fieldwork with gene therapists in London and Germany.
