Short Abstract:

The panel proposes to gather reflections that approach health and healing in relation to the multiple entanglements between humans and other more-than-human beings, according to different cosmopolitics and relational ontologies, as well as in the Anthropocene/Capitalocene/Plantatiocene perspective.

Long Abstract:

Current environmental, climatic and pandemic crises and environmental disasters impel us to think human health in relation with the environment and, in general, with other more-than-human beings co-dwelling on Earth (including, besides humans, also animate and inanimate beings, pertaining to the “natural realm” like animals, plants, minerals, etc.; those of the “technological realm” like objects, artifacts, machines, etc., and those of the “spiritual realm” like spirits, ancestors, divinities, forces, etc.).

Thus, this panel aims to bring to the debate the ways in which more-than-human beings participate in the production of the body, health, and healing; what “healths” and cosmopolitics emerge from fieldworks conducted in the midst of ecological disasters, political-economic austerities, wars and health crises; how more-than-human assemblages participate in the process of health and illness as well as in therapeutic spaces; how the process of health and illness are lived and conceived in relational ontologies, and different cosmopolitics, as well as related issues.
