This year’s second overseas conference was held in Sydney at a new and fancy conference centre in Darling Harbour. With some of my Japanese colleagues, we have created a digital essay on the “Anthropologies of Science and Technology in Japan,” which was part of the new exhibition called STS Across Borders. The best for the genre is probably “experimental.” Not only we, even the organizers did not know how it was going to be. It was fun though and we hope to continue tinkering with this text-like-archive-of-genealogies.
As part of a collaborative project at Minpaku on care in anthropology with a focus on Southeast Asia, Japan and Europe, I will talk, once more, about how experiment and care fold into each other in clinical trials across Hungary and Japan. I have written and presented about this both in Japanese and in English, but most listeners are very skeptic to these ideas. I’m sure I’ll have a hard time, again.

A further take on the session at AAA2013@Chicago. We were interviewed by the recently launched Cultural Anthropology Podcast. A bunch of vaguely related, but interesting things. Thanks for you interest!
