I am excited for the annual meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4s), which begins on September 4. The conference theme is as follows:
Innovations, Interruptions, Regenerations invites presentations, panels and other events that are innovative in form and content, conveying and examining insights from science and technology studies (STS) into innovation itself, innovations in STS and ways STS can be both a source and site of regenerations of many kinds. Conference sessions will also examine how STS can interrupt and provide critical perspectives on entrenched ideas, helping innovate alternative pathways.
On Saturday, September 7, Matt Ventresca and I are presenting the paper, Invisible Injuries Reconsidered: Coming to Know Embodied Trauma Through Post-Mortem CTE Diagnosis, as part of the panel, Injury and Invisibility: Empiricism and Anti-Empiricism in Knowing Damage and Regeneration, which takes place from 8:00am to 9:30am in the Grand Chenier Room on the 5th floor of the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.
The paper is part of a larger collaboartion, which is enabled through funding provided by an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
