Join us for Kulturfolger's ninth session of Thema Talks with Sandra Lang.
Chirality a scientific narrative:
This talk will explore the topic of medical knowledge which is in the orchestra of sciences. Medical science is inferior and dedicated to the the ill, the sick, the degenerate, and the pathetic. Medicine is deviant and is it not the norm. The unspoken and implicit hierarchy infects the discipline and reflects the fossilized pre-ideas remaining from the paradigm of the unity of science.
Sandra Lang, is a currently attaining her Ph.D. at the Ludwik Fleck Center of the Collegium Helveticum. She is working on a scientific sociological sub project on chirality as a molecular property and related implications for the transfer of knowledge in biomedicine. Between October 2013 and March 2014, she worked as an intern at the Ludwik Fleck Center and assisted Martina Schlünder within the framework of the project "The Serological Works of Ludwik Fleck (1896-196) and her relevance for today's biomedical practice and for the history and theory of biomedicine ». Within the framework of this project, her master thesis was also developed under the theme "gain in translational medicine through the theory and practice of Ludwik Fleck". She accrued her master's degree in sociology at the University of Freiburg she focused on the fields of knowledge and science sociology as well as gender studies.
