crossSTS Returns: Science of Bodies, Bodies in Science

Announcement,Series January 25, 2015 1:49 pm

The crossSTS Working Group at MIT’s Program in History, Anthropology, and STS (HASTS) returns for five exciting meetings in Spring 2015. crossSTS started in Fall 2014, exploring the recent disciplinary, spatial, temporal, and geographical crossings in Science & Technology Studies in monthly meetings.

We will start and end our second term with more general reflections on researching in field and archive and the politics in/of our own field STS, respectively. At the three meetings in between, we will focus on bodies in science: senses in science, bodies in (toxic) ecologies, and queer bodies and relations.

We are delighted to have a magnificent line-up of discussants from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and different institutions including Erica James, Malick Ghachem, and Chris Walley from MIT; Amy Moran-Thomas from Brown; Angie Willey from UMass Amherst; and Sophia Roosth, Alma Steingart, and Sheila Jasanoff from Harvard.
