Critical Commentary

In the 2018 Sydney Conference of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S), Aalok Khandekar and Kim Fortun curated a special exhibition “STS Across Borders” in line with the conference theme, “TRANSnational STS.” In the 2019 New Orleans Conference of the society, the curators extended and deepened this first exhibition with the “Innovating STS” exhibition. Both exhibitions inspired and oriented new collaborative initiatives questioning, designing, and infrastructuring the transnational scope of STS. This is an abridged transcription of the interview conducted with Khandekar and Fortun, which accompanies the full unedited audio file also available in this text. The interview supplements the thematic collection “TRANSnationalizing STS: Places and Spaces” which built upon these exhibitions. In this interview, Khandekar and Fortun discuss the conceptualization, design processes, and insights gained from these two exhibitions.
