Talks should be “tuned” for a highly diverse audience in terms of disciplinary background, as we expect a mix of STS scholars and researchers who practice data intensive computational methods. We encourage scholarship that engages technical issues but does so in a "human readable" manner. We welcome examinations of political topics (of whatever flavor), but done in a politic manner. We are excited by theory, but more so if done via grounded empirical investigations. We welcome applications from senior faculty, junior faculty, postdocs, as well as visiting or research professors.
