KP-1: Knowledges and practices-1
Location: Reading Room №7 (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Prof. Ana Delgado, Univeristy of Oslo
This first part of the thematic stream “Knowledges and practices” focuses on relations between different kinds of knowledge that meet, clash, compete, and co-exist in health care and medical research. Authors of the papers to be presented here go beyond the apparent uniformity of the knowledge that is relevant and useful for treating people and developing medical technologies. They also reveal the multiplicity of knowledge-based practices in medical research and care and raise questions about the nature of expertise and ways in which divergent knowledges and knowledge-based practices can be productively bridged.

BH-1: Beyond one health. The politics of inclusion and multiplicity-1
Location: English Reading Room (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Dr. Olga Ustyuzhantseva, PAST Centre
One Health, as understood in global health, proposes to integrate animals and plants but also microbial ecologies, which have been neglected previously. However, integration can also produce new exclusions, when it strives to channel the world through new universalizing frameworks.
IR-1: Interactions and relationships-1
Location: Small Conference Hall (Research Library of TSU, old building)
Chair: Anna Aleksandrovna Ozhiganova, Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology Russian Academy of Sciences
What does happen and why when doctors and patients or medical researchers and research participants meet? This long-considered question calls for re-examination nowadays, when mutual expectations change, medical institutions evolve, and new technologies emerge. Authors in this session consider anew how doctors, physician-researchers, and patients view one another, how they understand and manage frictions, and what kinds of options we can consider for enabling more rewarding relations.
KP-2: Knowledges and practices-2
Location: Room 75A (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Dr. Olga Zvonareva, Maastricht University
This second part of the thematic stream ‘Knowledges and practices’ focuses on the contingent ways in which doctors, patients, and medical researchers relate to the ideas and practices of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM). EBM relies on randomized controlled clinical trials as the key source of reliable evidence regarding safety and efficacy of new treatments. Authors of the papers to be presented here investigate how doctors make decisions in practice and navigate multiple sources of evidence, while negotiating constraints institutions place on their options; how participation in clinical trials influences subsequent treatment trajectories of the patients; and how debates currently evolve about which trial designs are better for producing evidence for medical practice.

IR-2: Interactions and relationships-2
Location: Small Conference Hall (Research Library of TSU, old building)
Chair: Prof. Anna Temkina, Europeam University at St.Petersburg
This second part of the thematic stream ‘Interactions and relationships’ moves forward to consider the complexity of technological and societal change. When such far-reaching alterations as digital technologies enter the scene, what do concerned actors, including decision-makers, developers, healthcare workers, and patients do to direct the use of the technologies and manage their consequences? What are the implications of the new knowledge provided by advances of epigenetics for how we understand our responsibilities towards future generations? How are families changing together with wider social, demographic, and digital shifts? Papers in this session allow close tracing of how interactions and relationships between actors, existing and imagined, are shaped together with ongoing sociotechnical transformations.
MM: Models of mental health and illness
Location: Room 75A (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Prof. Elena V. Gutkevich, Mental Health Research Institute, Tomsk NRMC, Tomsk; National Research Tomsk State University, Tomsk
Chair: SVETLANA VLADIMIROVA, Mental Health Research Institute, Tomsk National Research Medical Center, Russia
This session aims to initiate discussion and support interaction in the field of mental health care at various levels: between those who experience mental health problems and those who do not; between members of local communities, including families of those who experience mental health problems; between different classifications, hierarchies and models of health and illness. Such interaction is necessary for improving quality of life and creating of effective technologies of preservation of health of the person and society.

SD: Making Socialist Drugs: Developing, Testing and Smuggling New Pharmaceuticals in Central and Eastern Europe, ca. 1930-1990.
Location: Reading Room №7 (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Dr. Pavel Andreyevich Vasilyev, Van Leer Jerusalem Institute
The panel focuses on the histories of new pharmaceuticals in the Soviet Union and the Polish People's Republic between the 1930s and the 1990s and considers their similarities, differences and entanglements with pharmaceuticals in the West.
SH-1: States and happenings of health-1
Location: Small Conference Hall (Research Library of TSU, old building)
Chair: Anastasiia Novkunskaya, European University at Saint-Petersburg
This first part of the thematic stream ‘States and happenings of health’ explores people’s health experiences, both their own and of others. What is it like to live with multiple sclerosis or celiac disease? What is it like to use assistive technologies for navigating your environment? What is it like to care for dying patients and their relatives? Papers in this session open up a new space to consider theoretical approaches that can be productive for capturing and making sense of what takes place when people’s health states change and/or diverge from those of others.

AR: Antimicrobial resistance. Building cross-disciplinary collaborations
Location: Small Conference Hall (Research Library of TSU, old building)
Chair: Prof. Klasien Horstman, Maastricht University
Chair: Alena Kamenshchikova, Maastricht University
This panel will explore the potential of collaborations between human, animal, and environmental health professionals in addressing the rise of antimicrobial resistance, as well as possible obstacles and difficulties that can be met in cross-disciplinary work. The panel will be organized around questions of whether it is possible to match interests of medical doctors, veterinarians, patients, animals, and environments, and how? And whether non-humans, such as bacteria, should be included in these collaborations, and why?
SH-2: States and happenings of health-2
Location: Room 75A (Research Library of TSU)
Chair: Lyubov Torlopova, National Research Tomsk State University
This second part of the thematic stream ‘States and happenings of health’ considers how different health conditions become defined and how notions of an appropriate intervention are shaped. Using examples such as vegetovascular dystonia, popularly diagnosed in the Soviet Union, authors in this session explore social and political circumstances that make particular disease definitions possible and promote certain approaches addressing health problems over others. This session builds on in-depth, partly historical narratives, and provides rich material for reflecting on the drivers and implications of change in disease categories and accepted treatment approaches.
