This year I go to two international conferences during the summer. Both conferences are in the southern hemisphere, so they’re a sort of escape from the summer heat in Japan. In July, I organized a session at the IUAES (International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences) conference in Florianópolis, Brasil with two colleagues from Japan and Italy. It is a follow-up of the workshop we held in Kyoto University this February with many new presenters and topics, but still mostly an attempt to explore posthuman ways of life and especially the role of pharmaceuticals in shaping it.
