Materialisms Unbound: flows, temporalities, formations (Workshop)
May 7-8, 2015
York University, Toronto

The humanities and social sciences have recently seen a growing emphasis on materiality in relation to bodies, discourses, economies, affects, nature, culture, technologies, ideologies, assemblages, networks, entanglements, social formations, and latent potentialities. How, in this attention to the material, is our understanding of the social being recast for example in relation to transformations in capitalism, bearing on such topics as im/material labour and precarity? How might conceptions of the relationship between temporality and materialism be changing, especially in regard to the ephemeral, the enduring, to history and to moments and events? How can materialist methodologies be utilized to explore various empirical sites?

4S Denver: The Reflexive Turn in Art and Science Studies (Conference)
November 11-14, 2015
Sheraton downtown, Denver, Colorado

4S (Society for Social Studies of Science) Denver will focus on the importance of Making and Doing, illuminating the importance of material practice to knowledge production not only in the sciences but in Science & Technology Studies itself, raising questions which are central to the emerging field of Art and Science Studies. This stream explores the novel questions, methodologies, and theoretical implications of scholarship and practice at the intersection of  art and science studies with the aim of crystallizing our understanding of how the arts are intervening in our discipline. What do art and design have to offer STS scholars?  How have recent experiments with making and doing STS transformed conceptions of relations between art, science, design and technology?
