Publié le vendredi 17 juin 2011 par Loïc Le Pape

Résumé

The workshop will feature four sessions dedicated to some of the most important or well developed areas of visual studies of science: 1 “The making and materiality of visual objects”, includes the materials, techniques, tools and practices involved in the making of visual objects and their conservation; 2 “The circulation of images and of visual cultures” for instance among scientific practitioners, printers, engravers, draughtsmen, and different publics, but also across different publications; 3 “The uses and politics of the image” focuses on the intended functions of images e.g. in science popularization or teaching but also on their less intended uses in other realms and by other publics; and 4 "Images as epistemic objects” asks what roles images and visual objects play in scientific epistemology, e.g. as visual evidence.
