Experimental Biologies and Translational Research, November 6-7 2011

The second conference of the series will be held on November 6-7, 2011, at the University of Chicago, and will focus on "Experimental Biologies and Translational Research". Some papers focus specifically on translational research, which has become an important (if still productively undefined) category within the life sciences, especially from the perspective of funding bodies and audit cultures. But such work will be located within an analysis of broader historical trajectory, and conceptual arc, of experimental biology. In the process, it is hoped that useful conceptualizations of both experiment and translation will emerge, specifically in terms of the articulations between knowledge and value, whose theorization remains the animating principle of these conversations.

Schedule for the public events on Sunday afternoon and Monday. The public conference will be held at the Franke Institute (located inside the Regenstein Library) on Sunday afternoon, and in Haskell Hall room 315 on Monday.
