Seminar #16: Mianna Meskus



🌿 The sixteenth CreaTures and Friends seminar will take place on

March 29th, 2022, 12:00-13:00 CEST 🌿

Given the current atmosphere of social and ecological crises, there is increasing interest in conducing collaborative research across disciplinary boundaries that engages with different publics to tinker with futures. In this session, Mianna Meskus, Associate Professor of Sociology and Science and technology Studies in Tampere University will share her experiences and thoughts about methodological and ethical issues in conducting speculative research events. Drawing from case studies in social science and design research on emergent biotechnologies, she will invite participants to deliberate on what speculative research sets in motion when asking participants to imagine uncertain futures.
