Humanistic Studies of Science and Technology

Humanistic Studies of Science and Technology

This working group will contribute to an emerging dialogue within the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) around the incorporation of interdisciplinary humanistic approaches and methods in understanding

  • how scientific and cultural knowledge are produced;
  • how infrastructures that cross disciplinary boundaries can share objects, methods and features;
  • and how new technologies that blur material/digital distinctions are changing cultural institutions.

During the course of the year, the group will host workshops on "Finding the Known in the Unknown" and "3D (De/Re)Materialization, and a larger event on "Transduction, Making, and Affective History" which will explore the novel sensory possibilities afforded by new technologies that can help capture and recreate the smells of documents, foods, artifacts and environments.
