The P6 seminar series is co-organized by scholars at Tema T and G, and with active participants from across Linköping University. Outside guests are also welcome! We research topics of agency, embodiment, knowledge production, normativity, subjective and intersubjective meaning-making in relationship to the development and use of technologies (understood broadly), as well as how the subject and technology construct each other.
Our conversations touch on social, cultural, philosophical, ethical aspects of the development and use of technologies or techniques. We develop theoretical terms in dialog with empirical material and allow theory to inspire our empirical analysis. Using approaches from the social science and humanities, many of us contribute to theoretical discussions within feminist science studies, feminist technoscience, and feminist phenomenology, as well as to the medical humanities and science, technology and society studies.
The name P6 stems from the mid 1990s, when Professor Boel Berner (emerita) initiated the 6th Programme of Research at Tema T. The Seminar’s working language is English.
