Workshop The Nature of Nature - WTMC 2013

WTMC 2013 Annual Meeting

The WTMC Annual Meeting 2013 will take place on Thursday 28 November and Friday 29 November at Felix Meritis in Amsterdam.

We are very pleased that all members of our International Advisory Board (Aant Elzinga, Tom Gieryn, Steven Shapin & Andrew Webster) will be present at the 2013 WTMC annual meeting. Tom Gieryn will participate in a discussion about his famous concept of ‘boundary work’ with two current PhD students, Andreas Mitszchke and Jaron Harambam. Steven Shapin will hold an open lecture called ‘Who is the Modern Scientist?’. This will be held early Thursday evening, and is hosted jointly with the Huizinga Institute. Aant Elzinga and Andrew Webster are kindly acting as discussants at the Dissertation Day being held on 27 November, but will also be present during the annual meeting. In addition, we will have discussions about two recent books: Greening Berlin by Jens Lachmund, and Virtual Knowledge, edited by Paul Wouters, Anne Beaulieu, Andrea Scharnhorst & Sally Wyatt, and including contributions by many other past and present members of WTMC. We will also hear about the new Journal of Responsible Innovation, in which several WTMC members are involved; and we will think about ‘Science in Transition’, a new project launched by Huub Dijstelbloem and others (see next page for more details).

Please remember to bring copies of recent books, articles, posters to display.
Please register by 18 October 2013 (Hannie.spronck@maastrichtuniversity.nl). The announcement of Steven Shapin’s lecture is also published on WTMC’s website. You will not need to register for this again, if you have already registered for the WTMC annual meeting.
