Conference Registration Open!

All students interested in Science and Technology Studies (STS)  and feminist technoscience scholarship are invited to attend the 3rd Postgraduate STS Conference – 9th – 11th January 2013. This is a lively and supportive conference for postgraduate work-in-progress.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker will be Noortje Marres, Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths, in the Sociology department. On Wednesday 9th (in the afternoon) she will open the conference with a presentation on methods –  describing some recent projects and devices she has worked with, and discussing the kind of challenges they turned methods into – including plastic methods, real-time methods, etc.

Student presentations and plenary lectures from two Lancaster alumni will be held on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th January.

Endre Danyi, who gained his PhD from Lancaster Sociology, will present a talk entitled ‘Thinking places: a note on the situatedness of STS’. Endre is now a Post Doctoral Fellow at Goethe Universitaet in Frankfurt.

Yvonne Latham completed her PhD in the department of Organisation, Work and Technology and now works as a lecturer at Lancaster. She will tell us the story of her PhD journey: ‘Making connections: organisation, technologies and disabled people’.

This is a great opportunity to get to know the different kinds of STS work happening within Lancaster University, and become part of a community of STS researchers. Learn from the feedback given to presenters by our faculty rapporteurs.

Registration is now open – Click here to visit the online store.

Distance participation via live web link will be possible, at no cost. Email mini.sts.lancaster@gmail.com to register your interest. Details will be communicated directly to you as we get closer to the conference.
