ECD Early Career Virtual Workshop – A Conversation between IR Theory and STS: Knowledge Production and the Role of Networked Technology

15/09/2020 - 16/09/2020

Convenors: Lilly Muller ( from King´s College London, Johanna Rodehau-Noack ( from London School of Economics and Political Science


With the growth of new and emerging technologies that not only facilitate and accelerate data generation, analysis and dissemination but also enable new ways of determining risks and recognising threats, the processes that shape knowledge production are shifting and new socio-technological imaginaries of in/security emerge. Against the background of an ever-increasing acceleration of technologies and a normalisation of ‘technical solutions’ to inherently socio-political problems, this workshop discusses the interplay of knowledge and technologies that construct in/security on a range of issues – from cybersecurity to financial market collapse and conflict prevention. The workshop, convened by Lilly Pijnenburg Muller (King’s College) and Johanna Rodehau-Noack (LSE), especially invites contributions that put International Relations theory and Science and Technology Studies into conversation on the topic of researching knowledge production on security risks and threats.
