In what ways does this artifact draw on existing STS scholarship? What concepts and methodologies are hinted at as being important?

The paper draws hevely from  Bruno Latour's 2004  "How to Talk About the Body?: The Normative Dimension of Science Studies" build upon his concept of training of the body to percive, and similtaniously aquire taste for, the factual detail. A concpet Latour calls "factishes" combining the words fact and fetish. This influce however is the core theoricial drive.
As for methedology Donna Haraway's and Joseph Dumit's method of Implostion writng, where a an object is tracked on a multitled of dimensions that marks its intraction with the rest of the world. this can be the Labor dimensions, Professional/Epistemological dimensions, Material dimensions, Technological dimensions, Context and situatedness, Political dimensions, Economic dimensions, Textual dimensions, Bodily/organic dimensions, Historical dimensions, Particle Dimensions, Educational dimensions, Mythological dimensions, and Symbolic dimensions.
As the studie tracks pedagogical tradtions between medical practices at in diffrent cultures with differnt spcances and practicies, there soon beomces a qutions of equlties of produced knowladge and the gaps in knowaldge. This also ellues to a Dumits use of  Agnotology, a term coined by Robert Proctor. 
By identifying specific objects, they bolster both the implosive project and the can track the practices of perception within and between medical peagodies.

My research intresets involve, medical pedagogy and materiality, and traditions of the same. While my research has been focused around the interactions with the material object as a pedagogical tool of teaching, often with a historical approach, this text shifts focus to the sensory act of learning within medical training. Its approach, which maps this sensory act of learning. 

Method of "Wrtitng Implosion" is a ground breaking.
