		REVISIONING WOMEN, HEALTH AND HEALING: 
	FEMINIST, CULTURAL & TECHNOSCIENCE STUDIES PERSPECTIVES

			October 6-7, 1995
			UC San Francisco

Edited excerpt from conference announcement:

	Gendered, cultured, historicized, classed, raced and otherwise 
situated women are routinely erased as actors in the production of 
health, health care per se, as well as health politics and policy.Yet a 
sea change has been occuring across many if not most segments of the 
social sciences and humanities in terms of freshways of conceptualizing 
multiplicities, multiculturalisms, cultural critiwues, bodies, 
identities, marginalities, differences, women, subjects, objects, 
communities, practices and an array of other elements linked to modernity 
and post modernity. This Conference will draw on these new approaches to 
again rupture increasingly biomedicalized frameworks of women's health.

THIS CONFERENCE IS FREE. DEADLINE FOR PREREGISTRATION IS SEPTEMBER 27th.
