Anthropologie des zoonoses

With the support of the Axa Research Fund

English: Zoonoses raise a growing challenge to the life sciences as they force them to understand the mechanisms of transmission of pathogens that cross species barriers. The aim of this conference is to explore how anthropology may relate to this challenge. This will be addressed in two ways. Firstly, how might ethnography contribute to this field of research insofar as it involves long-time immersion in human-animal relationships? And secondly, how might anthropologists reflect on the public health response to infectious diseases transmitted by animals?

Français : Les zoonoses sont un défi croissant pour les sciences de la vie car elles obligent à comprendre les mécanismes de transmission des pathogènes qui franchissent les barrières des espèces. Le but de ce colloque est d’explorer la façon dont l’anthropologie peut se saisir de cet enjeu. D’abord, comment l’ethnographie peut-elle contribuer à ce champ de recherche à partir d’une immersion longue dans les relations entre humains et animaux ? Ensuite, comment les anthropologues peuvent-ils analyser les mesures de santé publique en réponse aux maladies infectieuses transmises par les animaux ?
