We are pleased to announce a new science and technology studies (STS) Working Group at the University of Oxford. With support from the ESRC's interdisciplinary initiative, a program of seminars has been put together for this and next term. The idea is that researchers with any interest in STS can come together to read, discuss and listen to new work from within and outside of the discipline and the university.

The broad theme is 'counting differently' but this has been interpreted widely with the hope to spark interesting discussions about what it means to count.

The group will meet fortnightly during term to present and discuss work broadly around the theme of counting. Researchers with an interest in STS, regardless of disciplinary background are welcome. To register your interest, suggest a talk, or if you have any questions, email: or
