Vermouth-Session! [Pecha-kucha + Round-Table]

On the one hand, there is an ever greater tendency for art and design research to establish and enhance its links with science and technology studies (STS), this has happened for a variety of methodological and epistemological reasons. On the other hand, while STS were born within the social sciences, they have extended their field of action to other disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas, related to the arts and humanities. In fact, art and design shares a mutual approach with STS that is beneficial for both sides considering their drive to transform and to be transformed.

The purpose of the present session is to explore this mutual approach from the multiple perspectives of those involved, as well as to exchange practices and experiences between researchers that have undertaken their work in the local context and those that come to Barcelona to present their ongoing investigations at the 4S/EASST Conference.

We expect this  session will stimulate the generation of forums for knowledge exchange of greater proximity, and the possible generation of networks for future work.
