International Conference: Chronic Living - vitality and quality of health in the 21 century

While still (too) many people die from fatal diseases, more and more people all around the world are living with chronic conditions.  With this move towards quality, vitality and health, and with chronic living as object at the intersection of knowledge production and intervention, a new politics of living continues to unfold which poses methodological, theoretical, and normative challenges in the social sciences of medicine.

'Chronic Living' is an international conference that aims to engage, unpack and explore chronic living and the politics of living that are at stake in it by bringing scholars together from medical anthropology, sociology, STS and other neighboring disciplines.
