STS Graduate Student Panel
Monday, February 25, 2019
4:00-5:30 PM
5670 (Eldersveld Room) Haven Hall Map
Environmental crisis, financial crisis, states of emergency and urgency. Crisis forms the backdrop of contemporary debates about the role of science and technology in society. Is there a "beyond crisis" when the concept itself has shaped so many of the critical tools in the humanities and social sciences? This graduate student panel will consider the insights that STS theories and methods bring to bear on discussions of various political, environmental, and financial crises in the present.
