City: Hannover, Germany
Organiser: Uli Beisel & René Umlauf

The symposium, entitled “The ecopolitics of cohabitations: Histories and futures of vector-control” is aimed to provide us with a cutting- edge framework to open-up an interdisciplinary discussion on the geographies and histories of vector control and disease prevention schemes. To adequately depict and give a comprehensive account of the global multispecies entanglements between regions, habitats, hosts, vectors and pathogens the symposium will provide a network platform and an exchange forum for young scholars from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines like e.g. anthropology, history of science, science & technology studies, entomology, geography and evolutionary biology.
