BIOART AND PUBLIC SPHERE
A WORKSHOP AND CONFERENCE SERIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA IRVINE
Conference: Monday October 17
Biotech Art Workshop conducted by SymbioticA: October 10-14
This initiative aims to bring together artists, biologists, and science studies scholars, to address a broad range of questions about science in the public sphere. The list of possible research domains to be investigated includes, but is not limited to, genomics, tissue engineering, genetic engineering and stem cell research.
We are specifically interested in the relationship of these research areas to the social landscape of the pharmaceutical industry, the agricultural industry, global trade and corporate license agreements, the framing of biosecurity and biodefense, constructions of disease, and the global politics of the reproductive health industry.
