October 5, 2007 – Experiments in Preparation

Friday, October 5 / 1–4 PM / Humanities 210

This event presents a forum for interdisciplinary scholars in science and technology studies to offer fragments, nascent thought formations, and elusive ideas. Through the interplay of less-than-complete papers, the cluster will experiment with the ways that early interaction inflects more fully realized work. In keeping with our current theme, Risk and Play: Experiments in Knowing and Relating, this discussion will encourage collective speculative engagement as a form of experimental academic practice. Topics of exploration include human/ non-human relatings, ecologies of hope, and the ethics of scientific experimentation. We welcome interlocutors from all disciplines to collaborate with our presenters.
