A Matter of Design: Imagined and Invented Worlds

by Redazione FGB [1], 12 August 2014

(continued from previous post [2])

Fondazione Giannino Bassetti contributed to the organization of the 5th STS Italia Conference "A Matter of Design. Making Society through Science & Technology [3]", that was held in Milan, Italy, June 12 through 14, 2014, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano Doctoral School in Design.

We make available the video of the lecture by
Sheila Jasanoff: "Imagined and Invented Worlds: The Three Symmetries of STS"

"The sociology of scientific knowledge made progress by eliminating, for methodological purposes, the distinction between true and false statements about nature. Actor-Network Theory expanded on that idea of symmetry by eliminating the sociological distinction between human actors and non-human actants. A third symmetry, inherent in my notion of co-production, insists that to understand the normative as well as the epistemic role of science and technology in society the same strategies must be employed to explain the construction of norms and facts or artifacts--indeed, that these are constructed together. Using the concept of sociotechnical imaginaries, and drawing on examples from the environmental and life sciences and technologies, I will discuss how this approach in STS can shed light on contemporary projects of knowing and (re)making worlds."
