AGAINST HEALTH: RESISITING THE INVISIBLE MORALITY
October 12 – 13, 2006
An international interdisciplinary conference provocatively titled AGAINST HEALTH will take place in the Rackham Amphitheater on the University of Michigan campus. The conference will call on the expertise of a vast array of disciplines to examine the ways in which the category of “health,” the norms associated with “health,” and the social functioning of those norms are, in some instances, at odds with human well being. Of particular interest are the ways that certain appeals to health risk authorizing, justifying, and immunizing from possible criticism an array of practices and power relations that would otherwise be vulnerable to challenge.
We aim to explore, thus, how politics, ideologies about race, gender and class, social norms and mores, and commercial and economic structures all work to define “health” in ways that benefit certain groups of people while excluding others.
