Call for Participation: WTMC PhD Fall Workshop ‘The view from somewhere: geographies of knowledge and STS’, 7 – 9 November 2022, Online

From Monday 7 until Wednesday 9 November 2022 WTMC will organize a PhD Fall Workshop (online):

The view from somewhere: geographies of knowledge and STS

How do space and place matter, when it comes to knowledge and to its study in our field? Which aspects of geography make a difference for organizations, hierarchies and patterns of interaction? How does geography become embodied in technical artifacts or scientific protocols? This workshop will consider these questions through the work of scholars spread out over the world and will also include an exploration of anti-colonial methods.

Speakers at the workshop will include:

Annemarie Mol, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Jakkrit Sangkhamanee, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand

Itty Abraham, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Cristobal Bonelli, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Sandra Calkins, Freie Universitat Berlin
