Fashionable Diseases Workshop With Ian Hacking

Members of International Health Humanities network may be interested in an upcoming event.  As part of a series of workshops for the Leverhulme-funded project “Fashionable Diseases: Medicine, Literature and Culture”  at the Universities of Northumbria and Newcastle, we are pleased to welcome Professor Ian Hacking (Philosophy, University of Toronto) on 15th May 2013, 10:30am at the MEA House Auditorium, Northumbria University.

Professor Hacking will give a lecture entitled “‘Making Up People’ Reconsidered” exploring the ways in which new scientific classifications of diseases such as multiple personality disorder and autism may affect experiences of them and thus give rise to a new type of person and way of being.    You may wish to read the following article in preparation for the event: Ian Hacking, “Kinds of People: Moving Targets.” Proceedings of the British Academy 151 (2007): 285-318.

All are warmly invited to attend.  See the poster below for details.
