See event details for joining links.


A new seminar series, running across the 2023/24 academic year, is being co-hosted by the Science, Technology, and Medicine in Society (STeMiS) and the Sheffield Animal Studies Research Centre (SHARC). Over the course of the year we'll be hearing from scholars working at the intersection of animal studies and science & technology studies. The first of these talks is being held this month. Eben Kirksey (who authored the paper widely seen as consolidating the now omnipresent field of multispecies ethnography) will be speaking on 'Chemopower in Multispecies Worlds' on Monday 23rd October 4pm-5pm. Eben's talk will draw together previous research on frogs, pathogenic fungi and pregnancy tests, with newer theoretical work on industrial chemistry. Those on the STeMiS mailing list will receive a separate diary invite - if you'd like to be added to the mailing list please let me know.

Eben will be presenting online (link here), but a room is booked in the Diamond (315, meeting room 1) for those in Sheffield able to meet as a group.  Other exciting speakers include Charlotte WrigleySelen ErenJon Henrik RemmeYamini Narayanan, and Alex Blanchette.

Our work

How we understand being ‘human’ differs between disciplines and has changed radically over time. We are living in an age marked by rapid growth in knowledge about the human body and brain, and new technologies with the potential to change them.
