The New Experimentalisms

A one day workshop at CISP/Department of Sociology, Goldsmiths,
University of London

Tuesday September 20th 2016, 10-5pm

Room RHB 137a

Organized by Michael Guggenheim, Dan Neyland, Alex Wilkie

Recent Science and Technology Studies (STS) work on experiments has
provided a basis for rethinking the terms, practices and consequences
of experimentation. This has opened up opportunities to question, for
example, experimental controls, provocative containments, training and
professional practice. This work has also broadened the traditional
STS focus on scientific laboratories to also include economic, social
scientific and commercial experimentation, exploring new territories
of experimentation and their attendant means of reproducing the world.

At the same time, scholars in STS, Sociology, Anthropology and Design
have pursued experiments not just as an object of study, but also as
something to do. Here we find, for example, experiments with
algorithmic walks, expertise and issues. An earlier critique of
experiments as artificial and interventionist has given way to a new
embracing of material staging of situations and problems.

Social researchers have come to acknowledge we can learn precisely
because of the non-naturalism of experiments. Experiments have become
legitimate forms to intervene in the world, and to invent new worlds.
In this way STS scholars have begun to think again about the realities
in which they participate. In this workshop we will feature recent
experimenters within STS with scholars who have analysed experiments
in specific fields.
