Natura: THe Science and Epistemology Working Group at Rutgers
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 20, 2017

Hosted by Natura, A Rutgers University Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Working Group focused on critical perspectives of Science and Epistemology, the 2017 Natura Conference explores how systems of knowledge interact. Isabelle Stengers calls for a cosmopolitics that will allow an “ecology of practices” to flourish. We seek papers that explore the tensions and potentials that arise when ways of knowing collide. How do new and emergent ways of knowing interact with established systems of knowledge? How has this process occurred historically as well as in the present? How are emerging epistemologies created, consolidated, and defended? By whom and for what purposes?
