“Feminist Placebos”: a collaborative philosophy project

In 2015, Dr. Suze Berkhout (MD, PhD) and Dr. Ada S. Jaarsma (PhD) decided to start collaborating on research into “placebos”:  the philosophical significance of placebos, the feminist import of placebos, and the many and varied political implications of placebos.  They have begun presenting their research at philosophy conferences and in various workshops and seminars, and their first co-written publication is underway.  Since placebos are of interest to a wide range of disciplines and to many different kinds of thinkers, this site is a place to learn more about the Feminist Placebo research project, as well as to find out more about placebos and placebo studies.
