More about the Congress
The International Congress Cultures of Science and Technology will take place between October 20-22 and is organized by the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Oviedo. Read the description for the event:
Faced with traditional definitions of “science” in terms of knowledge and “technology” in terms of material artifacts, studies of science and technology have approached these phenomena in recent decades understanding them as practices and as cultures. By studying how science and technology are made and the set of resources in which these practices are developed and on which they operate, science and technology leave texts and artifacts and come to life in laboratories, workshops, offices, libraries or archives.
But in a society in which science and technology play a leading role, it is also necessary to attend to the cultures and public practices that they generate beyond professional communities. These public cultures of science and technology can be understood as the set of scientific-technological resources that society, individually and collectively, acquires and mobilizes (in terms of knowledge and attitudes) and that also have an important practical component (in terms of behaviors). These public cultures of science and technology and their associated practices make up the center of this meeting, which is structured around four related thematic axes: perception, communication, education and participation. Through these four axes, the processes of production of public cultures of science and technology will be approached through transmission practices in different contexts and social appropriation by citizens. acquires and mobilizes (in terms of knowledge and attitudes) and also has an important practical component (in terms of behaviors).
