AsSIST-UK Virtual Workshop June 18 2020:
STIS in a post-COVID-19 world
We decided to postpone the national AsSIST-UK meeting until next Easter. Instead we organised a virtual workshop on June 18 around the theme of how STIS can contribute towards recent debates around COVID-19.
The workshop brought together Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (STIS) scholars to explore how STIS approaches can provide insight and especially a forward look on the transition into a post-Covid19 world.
Our Panel focussed on topics such as transitional dynamics and the socio-technical uncertainties seen during the pandemic and how these raise new questions for our research and society.
A full report on the meeting is available at https://assist-uk.com/report-on-the-assist-uk-webinar/ . There is available now a YouTube recording of the event, which can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MattzeH8MWA.
