TechnoScience Improv

May 1 @ 12:15 pm - 2:15 pm  |  Humanities 1, Room 210


Co-sponsored by Center for Cultural Studies, History of Consciousness: GeoEcologies + TechnoScience Conversations, Global and Community Health, and the Science & Justice Research Center

This two-hour roundtable improv (12.15-2.00pm) brings together ten UCSC scholars working on social, historical, and cultural studies of science, technology and medicine. The event will be structured around eight open, improvised conversations. Rather than structured around formal talks, each conversation will start with a question from a different panelist exploring emerging practices, speculative transformations, and critical imaginings of technoscience, health and ecology.

We welcome panelists: Dimitris Papadopoulos (convenor), Karen Barad, James Doucet-Battle, Kat Gutierrez, Maria Puig de la Bellacasa, Jenny Reardon, Warren Sack, Kriti Sharma, Matt Sparke, and Zac Zimmer.
