The Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) has a strong and creative STS core, rooted in the experimental origins of the university and radical interdisciplinary commitments of its School of Social Sciences, extended through the work of evolving clusters of anthropologists with commitments to feminist and postcolonial studies, American pragmatism, and the critical promise of ethnographic method. Today, there are strong threads of STS research focused on technology and financial inclusion, environmental sciences and governance, digital and data cultures, and the politics of health and medicine. There is also shared interests in inventive uses of technology in research, and for visualizing and sharing research results. This exhibit will explore how these histories and interests intersect, taking both anthropology and STS in new directions.
