The Science, Technology, and Medicine (STM) interest group of the Society for Medical Anthropology is pleased to welcome submissions for the 2017 STM Graduate Student Paper Prize. This prize is awarded annually for a paper that offers an innovative approach to issues in science, technology, and medicine. Deadline is July 1st, 2017.
Inspired by multispecies ethnography and science studies approaches, this panel proposes that we reconsider relationships between humans and other species through a lens of play–not just play for fun, but play that matters, that engages, tests, challenges, and remakes how one is in the world.
This panel, organized by the Science, Technology and Medicine special interest group of the Society for Medical Anthropology, builds on recent efforts in science studies and anthropology to open up the “black box” of valuation processes in technoscientific domains.
