For example, we study the role of technology in daily life and in how we understand ourselves and the world. We also study how values and norms are expressed, enacted, negotiated, transformed and reinforced in different practices and contexts where technology is developed and used.Research at Tema T – Technology and Social Change is divided into three research programmes. P6: Bodies, Knowledge, Subjectivities researches topics of agency, care, embodiment, knowledge practices, normativities, and subjectivities in science, medicine and other technological practices. These topics are examined from social, cultural, philosophical, and ethical perspectives, contributing to feminist theory, medical humanities, and science, technology and society studies.
STRIPE gathers researchers with an interest in the political and environmental dimensions of infrastructures such as energy, transport and waste.
ValueS researches valuation practices including rankings, metrics, pricing, impact, evaluation and so on, across a variety of fields in and beyond technology and scientific knowledge. The work is rooted in science and technology studies (STS) and both draws on and contributes to contemporary theoretical problems of agency, ontology, governance and materiality.
