During the past few months, my work has been heavily inspired by Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Actor-Network Theory (ANT).
Two really interesting Danish PhD theses, a remarkable text by John Law, a fascinating article by Ingunn Moser and John Law, and one unique and attention-grabbing book by Annemarie Mol, is one way of explaining what has spurred my interest in STS and ANT (see below):
- Jensen, Tine (2005): Variations of the Fifth Dimension: competences – computers – subjectivities. PhD thesis, Department of Psykology Philosophy / Science Studies, Roskilde University. Denmark.
- Sørensen, Estrid (2005): STS goes to school: Spatial imaginaries of technology, knowledge and presence. PhD thesis, Department of Psychology, University of Copenhagen. Denmark.
- Mol, Annemarie (2002): The body multiple: ontology in medical practice. Duke University Press.
I owe my good colleague and fellow PhD student Nana Benjaminsen a huge “thank you J” for enthusiastically sharing experiences with readings of Law and Annemarie Mol. Furthermore, she initiated our PhD studygroup in STS and ANT studies at DPU (The Danish School of Education, Aarhus University).
