We are delighted to announce our two-day workshop on Translating STS to Security Sites. During the workshop we will discuss how we can redefine and rethink the conceptual terminologies of STS to make them attuned to researching controversies in de-bounded, secretive, and profoundly political security sites. The first day of the workshop (25 June) is open for colleagues and others who are interested to engage in this discussion with us and other scholars who have been engaged in developing and deploying new approaches to thinking about security politics. We are happy to welcome among others, Nisha Shah (University of Ottawa), William Walters (Carleton University), Anna Leander (Copenhagen Business School), Louise Amoore (Durham University). The full program can be found here.
Translating STS to Security Sites is organized by Tasniem Anwar, Dr. Rocco Bellanova and Prof. Marieke de Goede
