STS Oxford Working Group: Counting Differently

We are pleased to announce a new ESRC-funded interdisciplinary Science and Technology Studies working group. The aim is to establish a network of researchers interested in STS to convene once a fortnight to read, discuss and present about research and ideas on the broad topic of ‘counting’. The theme is intentionally broad to allow a diverse range of STS-inspired discussion about: What counts? Who counts?  When does it count? Where is it counted? Why should we count it at all?

 Researchers with an interest in STS, regardless of disciplinary background are welcome. More details about speakers, seminars and dates to be posted soon. To register your interest, suggest a talk, or if you have any questions, email:

Farzana Dudhwala at or Thomas Turnbull at
