We invite abstracts for the panel “Circulating Referees – Looking for Irritations with Spaces and Places of Science“. It will be realised in the form of a walkshop at the conference “CIRCULATIONS” organised by the STS-HUB.de, 15.-17.03.2023 at Human Technology Center Aachen.
The panel aims to shed light on socio-spatial locations and situations of science. In this way, we will also explore different ways in which science studies and higher education research situate themselves. For this purpose, the university rooms will be tentatively extended by a “walkshop”, which moves presentations into the public space and enables irritations outside of the conference setting.
We are looking for contributions that investigate how tensions between opening science for societal demands and scientific autonomy are addressed, made productive or ignored in different places and spaces of science, both established and newly emerging ones. Contributions can approach the spatial possibilities and limits of science both in terms of choosing a particular location as well as content-wise in conceptual, empirical or practical terms. For instance, contributions might explore:
