Mimicry in Metabolism(s): Industrial Chemicals, Synthetic Hormones, and Unruly Bodies.
The workshop will bring together people from different disciplines inside and outside academia in order to enable a dialogue on mimicry as a productive concept to understand and juxtapose industrial chemicals and synthetic hormones.
The event will take place in several locations with varying times. For further details please take a close look at the programme below.
Target audience: the workshop welcomes everyone interested in the intersection of different knowledges on Endocrine Disruptors (EDC) and synthetic hormones as well as interdisciplinarity within and outside academia. The presenters have a background in life science, social science, humanities and art.
Day one will be addressing a broader audience, including a public event in the evening.
The second day will be a research symposium. Reading material will be distributed after registration. In addition, we invite participants on a voluntary basis to pre-circulate a short position paper.
Registration for the workshop is required by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.
