Epistemic Encounters

In this class session we will focus on epistemic cultures and their research encounters, essential in increasingly interdisciplinary scholarly work of our time.

InterdisciplinaryStudies

We will discuss methodological and epistemological benefits and challenges arising from interdisciplinary collaboration of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and computer sciences, addressing issues such as articulation of field-specific methods and research objects; harmonization of research heuristics and hermeneutics; development of trust and shared vocabulary among epistemic cultures.

Theoretical framework of our class will be based on anthropological concepts of epistemic cultures and trading zones (Forsythe; Knorr-Cetina; Galison).
