DASTS Conference 2018 at the ITU

On May 24th-25th 2018, the ITU hosts the biannual Danish Association for STS (DASTS) Conference. The 2018 DASTS conference is organised by the Technologies in Practice research group.


The theme for the conference is the data moment, and DASTS states the following about their 2018 conference: “Given the speculative and hype infused conjuncture we find ourselves in, this conference encourages an engagement with the making and unmaking, potentials and pitfalls, of data, in all its various nomenclatures, guises and manifestations – data work, data practices, data imaginaries, models and infrastructures, and so forth. The so-called ‘data moment’ poses compelling empirical, theoretical and ethical challenges and is an opportunity to take stock of how STS might engage, and think with, data.”
