Design and Social Science seminar: Rubbish metrics and genomic idiots

Wednesday, April 2nd brings us a new seminar in the Design and Social Science series, titled: “Rubbish metrics and genomics idiots: live methods and data-intensive provocations”. The speakers will be Adrian Mackenzie, from Lancaster University, and Ruth McNally, from Anglia Ruskin University. Their presentation will describe four years worth of attempts to inhabit genomic databases ethnographically and to construct provocations from the data.

The seminar takes place in room 137a of the Richard Hoggart Building, starting 4 pm; as usual, entry is free.
