Call for papers - La médecine du tri II. L’extension d’un paradigme ?

In 2012, a first interdisciplinary symposium had shown that sorting was a “flip side” of care, and not an act reserved for situations of medical resource scarcity. The resulting book, La médecine du tri. Histoire, anthropologie, éthique, demonstrated that sorting could be viewed as a foundation of current medical practice (Lachenal, Lefève, and Nguyen 2014), articulating itself more broadly to contemporary biopolitics (Fassin 2018). He began to list its multiple terrains : emergency departments, organ transplants, addictology, cardiac surgery, reproductive medicine, neurovascular resuscitation, palliative care, Permanences d’Accès aux Soins de Santé, HIV and AIDS, research protocols, etc.

As a follow-up, this second edition aims to question the extension of the sorting paradigm in contemporary medicine, documenting the diversity of prioritization and sorting fields and practices, and linking sorting operations to their political, social and economic contexts, as well as to the constraints that influence the values and choices of the protagonists. This symposium will provide an opportunity to take stock of the current state of knowledge and research in the social sciences and humanities on sorting in medicine. Please see the attached document for details of how to submit your paper.
