eHumanities and Sal Restivo

eHumanities Group of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences has moved this week to new offices at Meertens Institute.

Traditional weekly research meeting was thus also held in new premises, and it featured Sal Restivo, professor of sociology, science studies, and information
technology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. A founding member and former president of the Society for Social Studies of Science, and the editor-in-chief of Science, Technology, and Society: An Encyclopedia (Oxford University Press, 2005), Dr Restivo gave a talk “Brains, Robots, and Humans: Reflections on Information and the Neurosociety”.

A borrel following the talk helped celebrate the move to new offices and the launch of a new series of research meetings.
