Call for Papers – Targeting Therapies: Exploring the Cultural & Normative Dimensions of ‘Targeted’ Approaches to Biomedicine and Public Health

It is increasingly common for governments to commit, symbolically and economically, to dreams of therapeutic innovation in healthcare. This often relates to ‘targeted’ approaches, such as pharmaceuticals aimed at very specific kinds of disease (e.g. certain cancers), which might respond only to people with particular genetic variants – imagined and innovated through the idiom of ‘precision’ and ‘personalised’ medicine. At the same time, we can see other ‘targeted’ approaches to healthcare in action; for instance, psychological therapy services tailored to specific populations and interventions that stratify and construct publics in response to existing and emerging forms of illness (e.g. restrictions on the movements of groups regarded as highly vulnerable to COVID-19;
increasingly narrow stratification of mental health diagnoses etc).

Through this conference, we will critically examine the design, delivery, and implications of ‘targeted’ biomedicine and public health to help us to better understand the dynamics between science, healthcare, and society. While research from the humanities and social sciences on biomedicine and public health often keeps these domains apart, our event will seek to consider the commonalities between them. We welcome approaches from bioethics, gender studies, history, law, medical humanities, political philosophy, and science studies (among others) to explore the cultural and normative dimensions of ‘targeted’ approaches and interventions in biomedicine and public health. Through comparative analysis across these disciplines, we hope the event will help us to explore how different cultural, historical, legal, scientific, and healthcare contexts interact in the shaping and deployment of ‘targeted’ approaches.

We invite papers that consider how societal histories, traditions, and legal processes affect how medical research is funded and conducted and how healthcare is prioritised and delivered. We also look forward to presentations that will examine how law, ethics, and cultures are impacted and contoured through targeted approaches to health.

The conference will be held at University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland from May 2-3 2024; it is funded by Prof Susi Geiger’s MISFIRES ERC project (grant no. 771217) and a joint Arts and Humanities Research Council UK research fund held by Prof Martyn Pickersgill – University of Edinburgh, Dr Ilaria Galasso – Technical University of Munich, Dr Sone Erikainen – University of Aberdeen, and Prof Susi Geiger – UCD.

Submission Process:

To apply to present at this conference, please submit an abstract of around 500 words of your research to gemma.watts@ucd.ie by 19 February 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of February 2024. Should you have any questions prior to submission regarding the suitability of your research proposal to the conference, please contact either Prof Martyn Pickersgill (martyn.pickersgill@ed.ac.uk) or Prof Susi Geiger (susi.geiger@ucd.ie) directly.

Travel Bursaries:

For early career researchers there are a limited number of travel bursaries available to present at this conference. Early career applicants who are interested in applying for a travel bursary can specify this in their email when submitting the abstract, and please
provide a breakdown of the anticipated cost for travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses. The travel bursary will cover a maximum of 2 nights in a hotel.

ITP Programme | Essentials of Teaching and Learning

The International Schools of Business Management (ISBM) was created more than 50 years ago to improve the teaching and learning that goes on in business schools everywhere. Through its flagship programme, the “International Teachers Programme” (ITP), it has transformed the lives and careers of thousands of business school faculty and those who learn from them. 

The ITP, a multi-week, in-person programme delivered annually at ISBM member schools, trains participating faculty in “active learning” pedagogies and transforms their mindsets from focussing on teaching to creating environments in which learning comes alive. The essence of the ITP experience has now been extracted and distilled into ISBM’s newest and most scalable and accessible programme, “The Essentials of Teaching and Learning,” delivered in a remote learning format.

The Essentials

Given the wide array of teaching and learning opportunities that exists for business school faculty these days, your first question is likely to be, “What’s in it for me?” and, perhaps, what’s in it for your institution, as well.

What’s in it for me?

  • Proven content: The ‘essentials’ distilled from the ITP.
  • Your best self: There’s no single best way to teach. We’ll help you develop your own unique identity as a teacher. 
  • An international network: You’ll get hands-on, highly interactive learning in the company of dozens of highly motivated and like-minded international faculty peers, all of whom care about excellence in teaching.
  • An enhanced reputation: Learn from and get to know star faculty from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds from some of the world’s top business schools.
  • Fun, passion, and purpose: You’ll learn how to shape your classroom culture to deliver amazing experiences for every student. 
  • Impact: Most of us don’t teach just to make a living. We’re teachers who want to make a difference in the lives and careers of those we teach. The “Essentials of Teaching and Learning” programme will boost your impact. 

Who should join?

  • Inspiration: The transformation of your institution’s culture from one of teaching to one of creating learning environments is inspiring to behold and to be a part of.
  • Credibility: Show your faculty, students, and other stakeholders that your institution values and supports excellence in teaching. 
  • Enhanced student experience: Your students’ learning experience matters!
  • Faculty recruitment and retention: Attracting and retaining top faculty gets more difficult every year. Faculty appreciate working for institutions that invest in developing their skills.
  • Relevance: Organisations of all kinds – pretty much everywhere – need to be better managed. Your institution, drawing on the more than 50 years of learning from the ISBM consortium schools, can lead the way.

  • Four half-day sessions via Zoom

Webinar: GBSN for BHR Gender and Agriculture Cluster Workshop

Business school research on access to remedy for marginalised workers

22nd November 2023 at 3pm CET / 2pm GMT / 9am EST via Zoom. Joint event co-hosted by the research clusters on agriculture and on gender of the GBSN for BHR impact community

Access to remedy is one of the greatest failings of and most critical areas for growth within the business and human rights movement. The aim of the workshop is to bring together business school researchers interested in access to remedy for marginalized workers. 

We will discuss concrete examples from the agriculture industry to understand the situation of marginalized workers, where and why current remedy practices fall short, and what needs to change to provide remedy that is effective and accessible. A specific focus will be given to: 

  • the availability and typology of grievance mechanisms,
  • the blurred line between formal and informal grievances,
  • the lack of a gendered approach to grievance mechanisms, and
  • the gap between access to grievance mechanisms and access to remedy.

Initial findings will be shared from a research project led by the Nottingham University Business School on grievance mechanisms available to agricultural seasonal migrant workers in the UK. A case study on access to remedy for women migrant workers employed in the Fair Food Programme will also be presented.

Agenda

  • Welcome and introductions
  • The case of the agri-food sector in the UK
  • The case of the Fair Food Programme in the US
  • Discussion and development of a research agenda 

What factors make seasonal migrant workers particularly vulnerable to exploitation? Why are existing grievance mechanisms insufficient for providing remedy? 

The case of the agri-food sector in the UK, Oana Burcu, Nottingham University Business School

Post-Brexit, the UK agricultural sector has been facing challenges with recruitment from new countries. Workers burdened by debt due to illegal recruitment fees and employer-tied visas may endure exploitative conditions, lacking knowledge of rights and access to grievance mechanisms. Marginalized workers on temporary contracts may accept exploitative conditions rather than claiming their rights. Our project aims to develop a tailored non-state-based grievance mechanism that can guarantee effective access to remedy for human rights abuses to seasonal migrant workers in the agricultural sector in the UK.

How can effective remedy be implemented? How can remedy programs meet migrant workers’ needs, in particular women migrant workers’ needs? 

A rights-holder approach to access to remedy, Alysha Shivji, EGADE Business School Tecnologico de Monterrey

The case of the Fair Food Program represents the first operating worker-driven social responsibility model, that acts as an operable context for dialogic approaches to remediation, including with a specific gender approach. The remedial mechanisms of the Fair Food Program, which are designed and implemented around workers-rights-holders, include worker-driven audits and a 24-hr multilingual complaint hotline.

Decolonising Curricula: Implications for Racial and Climate Justice

In celebrating Black History Month in Ireland in October 2023, University College Dublin (UCD) College of Business, in association with UCD Center for Business in Society (CeBaS), UCD Earth Institute, and IPSERA, invites students, faculty, policymakers and those interested in racial and climate justice, to join this conversation on decolonizing curricula.

Date: Thursday, October 19th
Time: 1:30PM IST | 2:30PM CEST | 3:30PM EAT

The session will feature input from Dr Sadhvi Dar (Queen Mary University London) and one of the authors of ‘The Business School is Racist: Act Up!’ This will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Penelope Muzanenhamo and involving some of our current Smurfit students (Vignesh Asokh, MSc Supply Chain Mgmt), Angel Brummet (MSc Int’ Business) and Annylah Clarke (MSc Food Business), and CoB EDI VP Colm McLaughlin.

At the center of the conversation will be a number of important questions that include, but are not limited to:

  • What is meant by decolonizing curricula?
  • Is decolonizing curricula a Black and Brown people’s ‘thing’?
  • Who benefits from decolonized curricula?
  • Why are business school textbooks and other teaching resources mostly produced by White male scholars?
  • How is Western patriarchy intertwined with the current state of knowledge at the center of our collective debates on decolonizing curricula?
  • What does decolonizing curricula imply for racial equality, and climate justice?
  • Beyond racial and climate justice, what would decolonized curricula offer in terms of tackling structural inequalities based on gender, sexuality and ableism among other demographic labels?
  • What would decolonized curricula look like?

Please join us to understand issues of decolonizing curricula, tackle questions of racial and climate justice, and to hear from a panel of experts.
