Call for application for an early career workshop on:
“Participant Observation and Collaboration in STS Ethnography: Generating
Methodographic Sensibilities for Science & Technology Studies”
hosted by the Institute for European Ethnology at Humboldt University Berlin (Germany) in cooperation with the the ETHOS Lab of IT University of Copenhagen and taking place in Berlin from April 12-14th, 2018.
“The workshop focuses on the methods of participant observation and collaboration in and around the field in STS ethnography. By that, we seek to strengthen the capacity for methodography, the empirical study of research methods in practice. Prior to the workshop participants share draft articles on the workshop theme. These are discussed throughout the workshop, commented on and re-written during a practice unit. All workshop applicants are expected to also submit a revised paper for the organisers’ event at the upcoming EASST conference in Lancaster, UK (25-28th July 2018). The revised papers are intended for a future special issue, guest-edited by the workshop organisers.
Contributors include John Law (Lancaster University), Rachel Douglas-Jones (IT University of Copenhagen), Ingmar Lippert (IT
University of Copenhagen), Estrid Sørensen (Ruhr University Bochum) and Jörg Niewöhner (Humboldt University Berlin).”
