Eva Vibeke Kofoed Pihl: “Pig Patients and their Personalities”
April 18, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Eva Vibeke Kofoed Pihl
Ph.D Fellow, Center for Medical Science and Technology Studies, University of Copenhagen; Visiting Fellow, and The Science and Justice Working Group, UCSC
What makes animal technicians describe a pig as “depressed,” “a rebel” or “girly”? How do scientists get pigs to mimic human patients biologically and become sources of information on human health? Professor Pihl discusses human/pig becomings in biomedical research, focusing on apparatuses and spaces.
