Identifying Gaps, Building Bridges: Fostering Critical Exchange Between Socio-Legal and Science & Technology Studies
IRWG director Anna Kirkland is a co-organizer, along with Professors Rose Corrigan and Kelly Joyce of Drexel University, of a two day workshop to bring together scholars from sociolegal studies (SLS) and science and technology studies (STS). The workshop, Identifying Gaps, Building Bridges: Fostering Critical Exchange Between Socio-Legal and Science & Technology Studies, will take place May 10-11, 2018 at Drexel University.
The first two sessions will feature key scholars who have written STS or law and society introductory texts and have a proven track record of explaining key concepts and methods. There will be four Face to Face sessions where two scholars - one from law and society and one from STS - discuss their research projects, theoretical concepts and methodologies. Each scholar will respond to the other, discussing how they would add a STS or law and society concept or method to the proposed work. Face to Face sessions have been successfully used by the Denver Art Museum and the College of William and Mary. This format allows experts to engage each other in a creative manner. Lunches will be structured to promote collaboration and the creation of new networks and research teams.
This workshop is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under grant number 1656095.
