Ecologies of Empire Salon


November 11, 2021 (Closed event)


This salon follows the October 8, 2021 panel on Ecologies of Empire, co-organized by Zoë Wool and Xan Chacko for the Society for the Social Study of Science annual meeting. The aim is to allow the 11 participants in that panel to extend our conversation and delve into resonances that emerge across papers, allowing each participant to further develop their piece. The salon thus ensures that the conceptual work that went into the conference panel can be meaningfully extended, and allows participants the opportunity to develop new collaborations. It further builds on a very generative pre-conference conversation and co-writing session we held over the summer. The salon format, rather than the workshop, is also an effort to stage such convivial and mutually generative engagement, creating a space of productivity that is playfully modeled on leisure rather than labor. Each participant is provided with funds to procure food and drink, and caregiving expenses will be reimbursed should any participant need paid caregiving to free up their time.
