CANCELLED: Workshop: Perspectives on Scientific Practice

Egenis workshop organised by Dr Adam Toon

CANCELLED. We often think of science in a rather abstract, disembodied manner—as a collection of theories, for instance, or as a special method for gaining knowledge of the world. And yet science is also a human practice, carried out in a particular material and social context. This workshop will explore new ways of understanding scientific practice and consider their implications for the nature of scientific knowledge.
