Please join us next Tuesday, October 2, at 4pm at the Stanford Humanities Center Board Roomfor an introductory meeting of Science and Technology in the Postcolonial World, a Theodore and Frances Geballe Research Workshop.

The workshop will consist of three types of events:

Seminar Series: leading scholars in the field present their work on STS and colonialism/postcolonialism
Reading Groups: a forum for graduate students and others to read key works in science and technology studies and postcolonial theory
Research Workshops: a forum for graduate students to present work-in-progress to an interdisciplinary audience

On Tuesday, we will be discussing the upcoming schedule, and other organizing opportunities around STS at Stanford, including a Spring quarter conference.  Refreshments will be served.
