17th-18th September, 2015
Organisers: Daniel Neyland, Sveta Milyaeva, Vera Ehrenstein
Funded by: ERC project MISTS
At this event, we will ask: What happens when Science and Technology Studies engages with the economic?
Further information on the event including a programme and abstracts can be found here: http://www.marketproblems.com/economic-exchanges-event.html
At the event we will assess what STS work on ‘the economic’ could gain from an exchange with the broader STS community and vice versa. We will discuss the analytic utility of considering the economic in relation to STS research into legal and political formations, notions of embodiment, work on publics, consultation, issue formation and sociotechnical controversies, ideas of expertise, the performative turn, and what it means to move from scientific laboratories to sites of economic innovation.
The event will include four keynote speakers: Franck Cochoy, Sheila Jasanoff, Vincent Lépinay and Fabian Muniesa.
Alongside the keynote presentations will be a number of shorter presentations and discussions involving: Céline Cholez and Pascale Trompette, Joe Deville, Lilliana Doganova, Brice Laurent and Julien Merlin, Véra Ehrenstein, Christian Frankel, José Ossandón and Trine Pallesen, Noortje Marres, Sveta Milyaeva, and Gisa Weszkalnys.
The event is free to attend, but we do require registration for catering (etc). To register please send an e-mail (including any dietary requirements) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
