Science and Technology Studies (STS) empirically examine the entanglements of discourses, materialities and bodies that co-construct scientific knowledge and technologies, or technosciences. We engage with technosciences as historically and spatially specific practices that involve a mobile, unruly, changeable cast of humans, non-humans and more-than-humans – data, wasps, scientists, infrastructures, microscopes, organisations, viruses, trees. Given the central status accorded to science and technology to define the constituents of our modern Western polity and their qualities, there is a socio-political urgency in attending to how technosciences are imbricated in different life worlds, how they include or exclude specific problems and subjects and how they have effects on thinking, experiencing, and relating in the world.
