Preparing for the workshop's discussions
During this workshop we aim to draw together discussions on the papers by way of (probably) three time slots in which we use as a common ground these papers:
- session on: Ecological modernisation & sustainability: Mol on ecological modernisation and environmental sociologies1 vs Blühdorn on unsustainability2
- session on: heterogeneous engineering: we use Law's "the manager and his power"3, and Ingold's "The textility of making"4 as a secondary reading.
- session on: situated knowledges: Haraway's situated knowledge5, and as background reading an encyclopaedia article.
In order to utilise these texts as common reference points during the workshop, we like to suggest that you consider having a look at this indicative set of readings listed above.
- Kristin Asdal's Enacting things through numbers: Taking nature into account/ing6
