Description

Girton College, Cambridge

Workshop sponsored by CRASSH (University of Cambridge)

This meeting aims to develop a comparative understanding of the different ways in which medicine and biotechnology have been making themselves 'accountable' in a new context in which languages of accountability – in ethics and 'audit', for example – have been developed, and have become imperative. The workshop is being held by the Department of Anthropology's Comparative Studies in Biotechnology and Accountability Research Group (see below) and will bring together social anthropologists, sociologists and other interested parties in the field of medicine, from inside and outside Cambridge.
Conveners:

Dr Maryon MacDonald, Faculty of Archaeology and Anthropology
Professor Marilyn Strathern, Faculty of Archaeology and Anthropology
