As part of the University Symposium on Abundance & Scarcity, the IAS is offering the Spring 2012 faculty seminar “Pharmaceutical Geographies, Pharmaceutical Economies.” Designed and led by Susan Craddock (Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies and the Institute for Global Studies) and Dominique A. Tobbell (Program in the History of Medicine), this seminar explores the pharmaceutical industry as a locus of scientific and marketing practices, global policies, and biotechnological products that together exemplify the themes of scarcity and abundance.
The seminar will meet on Tuesdays 2:30-5 p.m. every other week starting on January 24, 2012, in the Nolte Center. The seminar is open to faculty, graduate students and professional staff. Faculty who participate will receive a modest research stipend. If you are interested in participating in “Pharmaceutical Geographies,” please send an email with a brief statement of interest and a paragraph about the research or reading that you have done which is relevant to the topic to Susan Craddock (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dominique Tobbell (email@example.com) by September 9. Please note that seats are limited. Selection of participants will be made early in Fall semester.
