ITN Knowing Vaccines
The Knowing Vaccines: Innovative Training Network is a multi-disciplinary project at the Faculty of Humanities at Hamburg University.
It consists of four professors, 5 PhD students and 1 postdoctoral researcher. The project spans the Department of History, Institute for Empirical Cultural Studies, Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology (Ethnologie) and Institute for Media and Communication.
The Knowing Vaccines: Innovative Training Network aims to explore past, present and emerging “Regimes of Remembering”, “Regimes of Knowing”, “Regimes of Doing” and “Regimes of Living” by focusing on historical, scientific, cultural, and political negotiating processes. “How should one live” is taken as a starting point for an investigation into global and societal negotiations of different actors and agencies. It takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the subject of vaccines to ensure meaningful dialogue between humanities, social, medical and natural sciences. The integrated research fields offer important perspectives on the subject of vaccines and reflect key methodological approaches in the medical humanities.
