Various Speakers


The Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology is pleased to welcome you to our annual graduate workshop. This year our theme is A Piece of the Action: Participation and consumption in/around science.

We are excited to welcome 15 speakers to the workshop this year, who will be presenting on a wide range of topics in the history and philosophy of science and science and technology studies. Who has the privilege of being given a voice in developing new technologies? What makes some forms of citizen science legitimate but not others? How have social movements and medical discoveries transformed the doctor-patient relationship? What affirms legitimate contributions to scientific knowledge?

The workshop will take place on Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23, 2024. You can find the workshop program and the book of abstracts here. Each session will be 1.5 hours long, and will consist of two 30-minute presentations followed by a 10-minute commentary and general Q&A. The event will be entirely hybrid, so if you cannot attend in-person we welcome you to join us using the zoom links available in the program.
