The Impossible Clinic: A Critical Sociology of Evidence-based Medicine. Talk and Book Launch

31 January 2020, 17:00 - 19:00

SG2 and Atrium, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

Join Ariane Hanemaayer at CRASSH as she discusses her new book The Impossible Clinic: A critical sociology of evidence-based medicine. Once considered revolutionary, evidence-based medicine (EBM) has failed. The Impossible Clinic interrogates the history, practice, and the pitfalls of EBM and how it persists due to intersecting relationships between professional medical regulation and liberal governance strategies.

Dr Eftihia Mihelakis (Brandon University) will lead the dialogue with the author from 17:00 – 17:30pm, followed by a wine reception with copies of the book available to buy.


Ariane Hanemaayer is a visiting fellow at CRASSH and assistant professor of sociology at Brandon University.
