PhD course: Scaling devices: methods and concepts for approaching scale in qualitative research
Deadline for application: 28 September 2021
When: 11 November, 15 November (not mandatory), 6 December.
Where: IT University of Copenhagen (in person)
Qualitative research studies of science and technology must often contend with devices that scale. These can be technological systems that are deemed to be large-scale, as well as concepts regarding how politics scale from local to regional to global conditions.
By attending to the scaling devices of our interlocutors as well as our own, this course explores how relations between what is perceived or constructed to be large and small are done in practice and how these relations of scale might be reimagined.
The course is hosted within the Welfare after Digitalization research project, and it welcomes PhD students within STS that would benefit from participating in the outlined conversations.
