Science and technology studies
Picturing technology as φάρμακον
Conceiving of technology in such a way as to depart from the world of manipulable things to reach the heart of the world into which we ‘have been thrown by birth and within which we try to orient ourselves by projecting our innermost possibilities upon it’.
Pedagogy of extraneity
The development of the actionable epistemic fluency, relational skills, and critical reflexivity that are consequently understood as much needed today could be integrated into cultural studies courses, alongside the field’s established theoretical trajectory and reflection on first principles. The latter involves consideration of technical vs. non-technical knowledge as well as conceptual problems of inclusion and relevance.
