Biographies of Artifacts and Practices (BOAP) Research Colloquium
Based on a collaboration of researchers from the University of Edinburgh, Aalto University, and the Technical University of Berlin, this bi-monthly colloquium provides an open platform for an international network of researchers interested in BOAP and related methodological and analytical approaches. Its main goal is to contribute to strengthening the robustness of research designs in STS and the sociology of technology and innovation. Each event features the presentation and discussion of one research project that traces the biographies of complex sociotechnical systems across multiple locales and extended timeframes, often linking multiple studies and scales of analysis.
The colloquium will take place online on November 1st, 4pm (CET). It will feature a talk by Dzifa Ametowobla, of TU Berlin. Dzifa will present insights from a biographical study of standardized organizational software in surgical planning.
