Call for Registration & Abstracts: WORKSHOP 'Postgenomic Determinisms: Environmental Narratives after the Century of the Gene', March 25–26, 2021

                Postgenomic Determinisms: Environmental Narratives after the Century of
the Gene (Online workshop, Ruhr University Bochum, March 25-26, 2021) 

This online workshop focuses on new postgenomic trends towards
environmental determinism. It aims to address the conceptual foundations
and theoretical presumptions of different forms of strong causal
influences on organisms and human bodies. In addition, it will
historically contextualize this new environmentalist trend, and explore
the anthropological, social and political contexts affecting and being
affected by these developments. This workshop will bring together
scholars from history and philosophy of science, social sciences,
biologists and activists who have expertise in postgenomic trends
towards determinism from philosophical, anthropological,
socio-political, and historical perspectives.
