April 18 Eva Vibeke Kofoed Pihl: “Pig Patients and their Personalities”
What makes animal technicians describe a
pig as “depressed,” “a rebel” or “girly”? How
do scientists get pigs to mimic human patients
biologically and become sources of information
on human health? Professor Pihl discusses
human/pig becomings in biomedical
research, focusing on apparatuses and spaces.
Eva Vibeke Kofoed Pihl is a PhD Fellow at the Center for Medical Science and Technology
Studies, University of Copenhagen as well as a Visiting Fellow at The Science and Justice Working Group at UCSC.
