主編的話   李尚仁 中研院史語所副研究員

醫學史和醫學的社會研究一直是中央研究院人文與社會科學研究所用力甚深的研究領域,在此藉本期STS學會電子報,介紹中研院目前正在進行的一項主題研究計畫「醫學的物質文化──歷史的考察」。主題計畫是中研院支持的一種跨學科、跨機構的研究形式,目的在推動新的研究主題與研究領域的開拓(參見http://aao.sinica.edu.tw/chinese/pro_trp.php)。歷年來由中研院歷史語言研究所生命醫療史研究室所推動的醫學史研究計畫,對於國內醫學史領域的開拓有相當程度的貢獻。本期電子報我們特別介紹「醫學的物質文化」其中四個子計畫,由陳秀芬教授、陳元朋教授、張哲嘉博士、顧雅文博士四位主持人執筆簡介,也刊出了主題計畫其中成果發表會的會議報導。中研院雖然不是個教學機構,但院方與院內成員一直和不少大學有教學上的合作。去年中研院新開設了人文講座供國內大學生選修,這期電子報將由講座的專任助教、畢業於陽明大學科技與社會研究所的陳姿琪小姐介紹講座當中STS有關的課程。最後,近年來史語所生命醫療史研究室持續參與教育部支持的「醫學專業教育改進計畫」,並在該計畫支持下設置醫學史教學資源網站「醫學史課程基本課程綱領」(http://www.ihp.sinica.edu.tw/~medicine/medical/),提供國內醫學史教師與學生的線上入門課程教材。本期電子報我們特別介紹了該計畫最近舉辦的「醫學史教案寫作工作坊」,探討PBL (problem-based learning)、TBL(team-based learning)等醫學教育正夯的教學法在醫學史教學上的可能應用。

2015 Asia-Pacific STS Network Biennial Conference 

Disasters, Controversies and Public Engagement

APSTSN is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the biennial conference, to be held in

Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Oct 1st~4 th , 2015.  

Conference Themes

Over the past several years, the Asia-Pacific has experienced disasters on various scales and severity, often compounded by technological system failures, such as the 311 earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Sowel ferry disaster in Korea, and the propene explosion in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. In addition, recent scandals regarding food safety in Taiwan and China have created a sense of urgency. These disasters and threats have brought major controversies over how to ensure a safe future in a risk society, and they have also drawn people from different sectors to participate in the discussion. Most importantly, the public has become even more critical in shaping the climate of civil and policy making opinions. Confronting these disasters, how do we mobilize and empower the public to engage in the improvement of a technological society in order to increase our resilience in the face of giant disasters?

Confirmed keynote speakers and panelists

Deborah Bird Rose, University of New South Wales, Australia

Tadashi Kobayashi, Osaka University, Japan

Kuei-Tien Chou, National Taiwan University, Taiwan

Hee-Je Bak, Kyung Hee University, Korea

Sulfikar Amir, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Science and technology in society has an important role to play in investigating disasters wherever they arise.

The theme for this meeting is “Technology and Innovation”. It responds to some remarkable and interesting outcomes in the philosophy of technology research. Innovation has been a big theme in public discussions, and more and more scholars are investigating the relationship between innovation and science, technology, etc., and thinking about the co-production of science, technology, engineering and innovation from the perspective of philosophy. It is thus particularly worthy of discussion as a central theme in the SPT biennial meeting.

The 19th meeting provides a forum to explore responses across the broad range of disciplinary perspectives found within science, technology, engineering and innovation studies. Papers are encouraged exploring diverse aspects of the theme from ontology, epistemology, methodology, axiology, and praxis.
