CASTAC Recruiting for Mentoring Program at 2014 AAAs

CASTAC, the Committee on the Anthropology of Science, Technology, and Computing, seeks to support the professional development of early career scholars in the anthropology of science and technology. Toward this end, they are launching a new Junior-Senior Mentor Program at the 2014 AAA Annual Meeting. Faculty and senior researchers who would be willing to meet with one or two junior scholars (graduate students and recent PhDs) are invited to participate in the mentor program at the Annual Meeting of the AAA in Washington, DC, this December.  CASTAC is also seeking junior scholars who would like to connect with senior scholars in their area of interest.

Experiments in (and out of) the studio: Art and Design Methods for Science and Technology Studies

Tuesday October 16th, 2012 10:30AM-5:30PM

Copenhagen Business School, Copenhagen

The organizers invite participation in an interdisciplinary one-day hands-on workshop on emerging methods of critical practice in science and technology studies, in particular methods that engage with art and design as well as performance and exhibition. Ultimately, we aim to refine our understanding and also intervene in the way that objects can stimulate and embody critique in STS.

If you are interested in participating, please send a brief (3-5 sentences) expression of interest and a short 250-word bio or CV to Dehlia Hannah dh2058@columbia.edu by October 8th at 5pm EST. Please put ‘Pre-EASST Workshop’ in the subject heading.…
