The sociologist Claudine Haroche (France) is emeritus Director of Medical Research at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and is affiliated to the School for the Higher Study of Social Sciences (EHESS) in France. In her book L’avenir du sensible, the author asks about the “sensitive” nature of human beings, based on the Renaissance ideas that have shaped our bodily, emotional and individual identities. Faced with a situation today in which so many of these identities have become fluid, the author examines the profound transformations in ways of being, feeling and thinking in the contemporary world, and reflects on the fate that awaits us, given these changes. At this event with Mito Reyes, Haroche will talk about her areas of speciality, including bodily behaviours, the mechanisms of psychological functioning, and how this affects ways of being and feeling human.

Bárbara Anderson (Mexico) became involved in the advocacy of disability rights after the birth of her son Lucca with cerebral palsy. Enrique Covarrubias is one of Mexico’s most important editorial photographers, and the quadriplegia that has resulted from an accident has not stopped him from carrying out major photographic projects. In his latest novel, Extrañas, the Mexican writer Guillermo Arriaga deals with certain pathologies considered to be curses in 18th century England. They will talk about the stigmas and many forms of not being defined by disabilities, with the cultural journalist Primitivo Olvera.
