The school welcomes PhD and advanced graduate students interested in addressing these issues from philosophy, STS, cultural studies, anthropology, and related fields (other backgrounds such as physics, chemistry or biology are also welcome). Each participant should propose a technoscientific “object” or case study (even a programmatic one) and contribute an approximately 10-page paper by December 15, 2013. A reader of texts will be distributed well in advance of the course.

Topics and Abstracts (as of Dec 31, 2013)

Here is a list of the 20 topics to be discussed at the Winterschool. In addition, there will be presentations by the Winterschool Faculty.
