Project description: What is the acceptable level of social performance in 21st-century societies? My research on social phobia, or social anxiety disorders, attempts to explain the reasons why shy and introverted behaviours have become unacceptable. While trends in psychiatric research and psychopharmacology have contributed to the increasing visibility of the disorder, cultural ideals play a key role in the move towards designating shyness as a pathological trait.

Remède colonial, remède national: L'Etat et la circulation des médicaments pharmaceutiques au Sénégal, 1926-1970. (Colonial remedy, national remedy: The State and the traffic of pharmaceuticals in Senegal, 1926 1970.)

Department of History, MÉOS, Université de Montréal.
Supervisor: Laurence Monnais Funding: Associated Medical Services, "Hannah Postdoctoral Fellowship".

Project description: This project examines the impact of government interventions and politics on the traffic of therapeutic substances and knowledge in Senegal and West Africa during colonization and the first years after independence (1960). Taking into account the set of economic, commercial, sanitary and therapeutic reasonings that shaped trafficking networks, this project looks at the values held, acquired and emerging from medications in material and intellectual exchanges in the specific social and political contexts of colonial and post-colonial Senegal.

Proulx, Michelle.
Pauvreté et logiques explicatives de l’inobservance médicamenteuse chez des hommes et des femmes de 40 ans et plus : perspective sur le risque. (Poverty and the explanatory logic of patient noncompliance in 40-plus men and women: risk perspectives.)

Équipe MÉOS, Faculty of pharmacy, Univerité de Montréal.
Supervisor: Johanne Collin.
Submitted: September 2006
Funding: IRSC/CHS (2003-2005) and Faculty of pharmacy, Université de Montréal (2006)

Project description: The purpose of the postdoctoral internship was to explore the subjective risk in medicated individuals. Ms. Proulx familiarized herself with different theoretical perspectives on risk, linked or not, to medications use, worked on developing an analytical framework that allows the thorough study of risk and produced scientific articles (published or on press). She worked on and published a study (co-researcher) and received a grant from IRSC Hypertension, circulation des savoirs sur les medicaments et perception du risque (2005-2008).

Rodrigues, Nubia.
Technologies de longévité – Ethnographie comparative sur les recherches avec les cellules-souches et espoir au Brésil et au Canada. (Longevity technologies – Comparative ethnography on stem cell research and hope in Brazil and Canada.)

Équipe MÉOS, Université de Montréal.
Supervisor: Annette Leibeing.

Project description: Stem cells are a key component of biomedical practice based on the notion of a human body capable of providing medications or treatments needed to prolong life. Based on this premise, the “bioautonomy” concept emerges, a concept that is essential to understanding the analytics of longevity, in parallel with the analytics of finitude. We also aim to display how the mentality of aging and decrepitude is progressively being replaced and overcome by the concept of longevity, forged by technologies that claim to recuperate the embryonic atavism of rebirth.
