The Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IHPST) at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce our annual graduate workshop. This year our theme is A Piece of the Action: Participation and consumption in/around science. 

Who has the privilege of being given a voice in developing new technologies? What makes some forms of citizen science legitimate but not others? How have social movements and medical discoveries transformed the doctor-patient relationship? What affirms legitimate contributions to scientific knowledge?

The workshop will take place on Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23, 2024. Participants will present a 30-minute presentation on a 3000-4000 word paper. Participants will receive comments from a faculty member affiliated with the IHPST before opening the floor for general Q&A. We will be running the workshop hybrid, and though there is no fee, we cannot cover travel or accommodation costs.
