Katrin Solhdju

Katrin Solhdju is a cultural studies scholar and FNRS research professor in the department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Mons in Belgium. Her research approaches are inspired by the Science and Technology Studies, pragmatist philosophy, and speculative thought while her objects rather coincide with the field of the Medical Humanities. She is one of the co-founders of the collective Dingdingdong, the Institute for the co-production of knowledge about Huntington’s Disease, member of the Belgian Advisory Committee on Bioethics and of the Groupe d’études constructivistes at the Free University of Brussels. Next to a large number of articles some of her book-publications are: Selbstexperimente: Die Suche nach der Innenperspektive und ihre epistemologischen Folgen (Verlag Wilhelm Fink, 2011), Faire art comme on fait société: Les Nouveaux commanditaires (co-ed., presses du réel, 2013), and L’Épreuve du savoir: Propositions pour une écologie du diagnostic (presses du réel, 2015).
