Short Abstract

This plenary session will inquire on the practices of concerned and affected groups and their embodied technoscientific politics. For this, we will have two presentations by Madeleine Akrich (Mines ParisTech) and Michelle Murphy (University of Toronto), whose empirical work has monographically been revolving around different collectives trying to politicise their experience in order to produce different forms of embodied knowledge. Following them, we seek to open up a discussion to focus on the particularities of these forms of embodied knowledge production, validation, and circulation and to what extent they might entail a science and technology by other means.
