Looking at Science & Technology, Together.
The Binocular Conference is an annual graduate conference jointly organized by the York University Science and Technology Studies (STS) department and the University of Toronto’s Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IHPST).
While STS and HPST often have different methodologies, concerns, styles, and goals, both disciplines train their sights on science and technology. The Binocular Conference is an opportunity for the graduate communities of the University of Toronto and York University to intentionally bring these “lenses” together, to mutually benefit from each others’ perspectives and scholarship.
This year’s theme is “Environments of Science.”
