The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, & Society announces our annual Graduate Student Organized Symposium
Friday – Saturday
10 Apr – 11 Apr 2015
470 Stephens Hall
We invite colleagues to join us for a two day symposium at the University of California, Berkeley on “faking it”–here construed broadly as fudging, imitating, juking, playing the trickster, pretending, feigning, re-creating, manipulating, falsifying. Our aim is to bring together a wide variety of scholars whose work, in some way, touches upon this issue. We invite colleagues to consider any aspect of the practices, epistemologies, ontologies, and politics of faking, copying, counterfeiting, or quackery. We seek to amplify and incubate a growing attention to the theory and practice of fake truths on Berkeley’s campus and beyond.
Keynote address: Joseph Masco, University of Chicago
