在蕾切尔·卡森开创性的着作《寂静的春天》(1962)出版之后,诸多专家与公民都试图理解,在过去、现在和未来,自然和人类的健康如何相关联。原有的疾病和疾痛概念为更具整体性的路径所挑战,这些路径将人类与他们所在的环境联系起来。空气、水和土壤中的毒害残留进入医学分析的前沿,同时生态学家也在试图界定一个“健康的生态系统”或“健康的地球”意味着什么。本次会议期望与会学者能关注以下问题:  
 
Since Rachel Carson’s path-breaking book Silent Spring (1962), many experts and citizens have been trying to understand how the health of nature and of human beings are related in the past, present, and future. Old concepts of disease and illness have been challenged by more holistic approaches that link humans to their environmental conditions. Toxic residues in the air, water, and soil have moved to the forefront of medical analysis, while ecologists have tried to define what a “healthy ecosystem” or “a healthy Earth” might mean.  This workshop will bring scholars to address such questions as these: 
 
· 健康的定义如何随时间而变迁,政治的、科学的、宗教的和其他力量如何影响这些定义?
· 在不同的文化和社会中,历史中的人体和自然有怎样的联系?
· 关于人类健康的话语与环境退化、地球衰败的想象如何相关联?
· 如气候变迁这样的地球变化趋势如何影响人类和非人类的健康?
 
· How have definitions of health changed over time, and how have politics, science, religion, and other forces influenced those definitions?
· What connections have different cultures and societies made between the human body and nature in the past?  
· How have discourses on human health and imaginaries of environmental degradation and planetary decay been linked?
· What effect have planetary trends such as climate change had on human and nonhuman health?  
 
 
此次会议向处于职业生涯各个阶段的研究者, 从研究生到资深教授到独立学者,开放征稿。我们将遴选所有申请,最终决定参会人选。申请者需要提交论文题目、一页以内的英文论文摘要(或者大约三百词)、一至两页的学术简历(英文或中、英文)。请发送至蕾切尔·卡森中心的电子邮箱:conferences@rcc.lmu.de
