Our second workshop meeting of the fall will be on Monday Oct. 7, 12:30-2pm in 386 University Hall. We will be discussing how to best incorporate STS scholarship into our teaching, with special reference to Matthews’ provocative preface to the 2014 edition of his edited collection Science Teaching (Routledge). Everyone is welcome to attend. A copy of a flyer publicizing the meeting is at the link below. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone in the broader campus community.

Our first STS meeting for the fall of 2019 will be Monday Sept. 9, from 12:30-2pm in 156 University Hall. We will be discussing a 2017 essay by Sheila Jasanoff called “A Field of Its Own: The Emergence of Science and Technology Studies.” Everyone is welcome to attend. A copy of a flyer publicizing the meeting is at the link below. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone in the broader campus community.

The STS working group invites you to submit proposals for colloquia, roundtables, and informal discussions on the theme of “persons” for the current academic year. Topics might include persons as objects and subjects of knowing in varied scientific disciplines; negotiations of the boundaries of the human and the animal; the role of genomics in the constitution of identities; psychiatric constructions of normal and pathological personalities; technological mediations of personhood, etc. Our hope is that the theme is both inclusive of much of what interests us collectively, and can give focus to our conversations over the next several months. The working group has some funding available to bring speakers to campus, but also welcomes presentations from faculty and graduate students on our campus.
We hope to offer up to 3-4 events each semester, roughly one each month on a Friday at lunch. Lunch will be provided by the working group. The earliest available date would be Friday, October 19.
If you wish to make a proposal, please contact one of us. And please feel free to circulate this invitation to others who might be interested.

The overarching goal of the Oregon State ADVANCE program, funded by the National Science Foundation, is to serve as a catalyst for advancing the study and practice of equity, inclusion, and justice for women and others from historically underrepresented groups in STEM who are faculty in the academy. The unique and innovative portion of the Oregon State ADVANCE program involves a 54-hour intensive immersion seminar focused on issues of difference, power, and discrimination. This workshop will include an overview of the seminar structure, content and pedagogy. We will engage in a set of activities based on Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed to explore the importance of understanding intersectionality for disrupting the normative workings of gender that maintain systems of oppression and privilege.
Sponsored by the Underrepresentation in STEM group of the Humanities & Arts Discovery Theme Science and Technology Studies project, with co-sponsorship from OSU ADVANCE, The Women’s Place and Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
Join us for this exciting event and mark your calendars!
