    Cultural Competence: Steps to take from Medical Education to Care of Patients

    Cultural Competence
    at the Intersection of Medical Anthropology and Medicine
    Steps to take from Medical Education to Care of Patients

    Contemporary societies are undergoing rapid and complex social changes in matters of national, ethnical, linguistic and cultural diversity. While the Swiss FOPH and the network of Swiss Hospitals for Equity (SH4E) take measures to move towards providing high quality care for all patients, the recently released learning objectives (PROFILES) for Swiss medical education address the need to serve diversity and vulnerability more precisely.

    We will engage in a critical discourse on how medical anthropology and biomedicine are intertwined in ‘cultural competence’ and the type of knowledge produced in related curricula and ‘care of patients’. We are particularly interested in how the concept of ‘cultural competence’ can be transferred from theory to everyday medical practice by benefiting, at its best, from a ‘joint venture’ between the two disciplines.

    Questions raised are: Why do some call for ‘cultural humility’, lifelong learning, and others for ‘cultural competence’ along with technical skills and defined knowledge? What is needed for medical education to meet these new learning objectives? What do health professionals need to provide high quality care to patients in cross-cultural encounters of ‘real life’?

    The presentations and panel discussion on the first day provide a stimulating input to reflect on the Swiss stance and to design future steps. On the second day, the emphasis is on the transfer from theory to practice and on benefiting from an interactive exchange with international and Swiss experts.

    The symposium addresses health care professionals, (medical) anthropologists, and related disciplines, (medical) faculty members, lecturers and students.

    CAV Symposium
    Virtual realities: Re-thinking ‘experience’ in the age of new immersive media
    For more than a century, social anthropology has attempted to describe, translate, and evoke the experience of Others. Using methods that situate the anthropologist in her collaborators’ time and space, the idea of “being there” and approximating what it must feel like to act and exist in different kinds of environments, has inspired a variety of approaches to looking, hearing, writing and recording. However, how close we as anthropologists can actually get to conveying the experiences of Others has always had its limitations, leading to critical debates of what is actually achievable. Currently, we find ourselves in the midst of a technological revolution: Virtual Reality (VR) and 360° video encapsulate the proposition of literally creating virtual environments that evoke an experience that comes closer than ever before to a sensory reality. With a look behind the scenes of VR and/or 360° video productions, discussing practical workflows, viewing selected examples and engaging with the theory behind the media, this year’s CAV Symposium is dedicated to the experiential, political and ethical possibilities, implications and limitations of the so-called new “immersive media”.

    Regard Bleu student film festival and Symposium of the Commission of (Audio-)Visual Anthropology of the Swiss Anthropological Association

    CAV En savoir plus ici

    It is our pleasure to invite you to this year’s student film festival Regard Bleu and Symposium of the Commission for Audio-visual Anthropology (CAV) of the Swiss Anthropological Association (SAA) entitled Virtual realities: Re-thinking “experience” in the age of new immersive media.

    With a rich and diverse program of student films being screened on Friday and Saturday, the Regard Bleu presents recent productions of young filmmakers and academics from Switzerland and abroad. While providing a platform for students to discuss their projects and exchange their experiences, the Regard Bleu also gives insight into student`s engagements with audio-visual media and may indicate current trends among young academics.

    Taking place on Friday evening and Sunday, this years’ symposium explores the question of how social anthropology may engage with the possibilities and limitations that virtual reality technology offers. For more than a century, social anthropology has attempted to describe, translate, and evoke the experience of Others. Using methods that situate the anthropologist in her collaborators’ time and space, the idea of “being there” and approximating what it must feel like to act and exist in different kinds of environments, has inspired a variety of approaches to looking, hearing, writing and recording. However, how close we as anthropologists can actually get to conveying the experiences of Others has always had its limitations, leading to critical debates of what is actually achievable. Currently, we find ourselves in the midst of a technological revolution: Virtual Reality (VR) and 360° video encapsulate the proposition of literally creating virtual environments that evoke an experience that comes closer than ever be- fore to a sensory reality. With a look behind the scenes of VR and/ or 360° video productions, discussing practical workflows, viewing selected examples and engaging with the theory behind the media, this year’s CAV Symposium is dedicated to the experiential, political and ethical possibilities, implications and limitations of the so- called new “immersive media”.

    We are looking forward to stimulating discussions and an inspiring weekend!

    Neuchâtel: CAS - Promouvoir une institution culturelle

    Université de Neuchâtel En savoir plus ici

     CAS - Promouvoir une institution culturelle

    Le Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) Promouvoir une institution culturelle se concentre sur les développements des institutions cultu- relles en cours et à venir. Celles-ci doivent sans cesse rivaliser en offres complexes et diversifiées. Elles doivent trouver des sponsors privés ou soumettre leurs projets aux offices fédéraux ou cantonaux. D’où la nécessité de développer des produits de haute qualité, qu’il faut vendre, d’abord aux sponsors, ensuite au public. Le but du module I est d’offrir un panorama des instruments de marketing, de communication et de financement destinés à la promotion d’une institution culturelle. Les transformations actuelles des institutions culturelles qui touchent de plus en plus à la structure et à l’organisation administrative de celles-ci feront l’objet d’une attention toute particulière. Le cours s’adresse à toute personne que sa profession confronte à de tels problèmes. Les intervenants, tous des professionnels reconnus dans leur domaine, proposeront un éventail des approches récentes en intégrant dans leurs cours des sections théoriques et pratiques (ateliers, dis- cussions, exercices). Le module I « Promouvoir une institution culturelle » aura lieu pour la 18e année consécutive.


    Dans le cadre du module II, il sera question de développement et gestion événementiels (automne 2019, voir le site web).

    Chaque module peut être réalisé de manière indépendante.

    Past, Present and Future of African-Asian Relations

    Société suisse d'études africaines, Société suisse de sociologie En savoir plus ici

    In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the relations between Africa and Asia. This is mainly due to what is perceived as increasing Chinese influence and presence in Africa. With this call for papers, the organizers encourage researchers to investigate sociological theories and conceptual tools for the analysis of the relationships between Asia and Africa. They welcome reflections on questions of methods and data for analysis of these relationships. The organizers are interested in past and current developments in the social structure of the world society. They invite papers on the economic, political and social changes triggered by African-Asian relationships, both on the African continent but also in China and other Asian countries. Finally, this call is interested in the driving forces behind these developments and their interests, again on both continents.

    PUBLICATION
    A selection of outstanding papers will be published in a conference volume.
