Et videnskabssociologisk blik på syntetiske samarbejder

Organizing collaborations:
Synthetic biology, social science, art and design

Dr. Jane Calvert gives a seminar on ‘Organizing collaborations: Synthetic biology, social science, art and design’, September 22, 3PM – 5PM in room K4.41, Kilen, Kilevej 14A., CBS
For registration, please send an e-mail to cf.ioa@cbs.dk before 19 September.

Something that makes the emerging field of synthetic biology particularly interesting is that diverse groups including social scientists, ethicists, lawyers, policy makers, artists, designers and publics are becoming involved in the field from the outset. In this presentation, Jane Calvert explore the opportunities and challenges provided by these new forms of collaboration, drawing both on her own experiences as a social scientist studying synthetic biology, and on the Synthetic Aesthetics project, which brings synthetic biologists together with artists and designers.

Event information: September 22, 2011, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
