About the series
Health is notoriously a complex phenomenon. Questions about what health and disease are, how they spread across individuals and populations, and how we can intervene to reduce the burden of disease have been approached from very different disciplinary, conceptual, and methodological perspective. In this seminar series, we continue the conversation on human health complexity that was initiated at IAS during Spring 2022. We focus on questions about problems, concepts & methods, and data. Our goal is to contribute to exchanging ideas and approaches, and gradually building what may be called distinctively a ‘complexity approach’ in the health sciences.
The series is composed of 1 on-site event and of 3 online events with the following dates and topics.
- 11.10.2022, 14:30 - 17:00 (on-site): Human Health Complexity: problems, concepts & methods, data
- 08.11.2022, 14:00 - 15:00 (online): Methodological pluralism in the health sciences: maximizing understanding or multiplying complexity?
- 22.11.2022, 15:00 - 16:00 (online): Which data to collect? Volume vs type
- 06.12.2022, 14:00 - 15:00 (online): Complex problems vs easy solutions
Please register for each session separately, as we aim to keep the group to a manageable size.
