Panel organized at the 2021 Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) Meeting.
What does it mean to engage in “good relations” in worlds that unfold after violence and destruction? How does STS respond to wounded worlds? This panel interrogates the vitalities of destruction not from universalist standpoints but from the politics wounded knowledges, ecologies of practice, and geographies demand. We seek a feminist contribution that acknowledges how technoscience is not only situated but also traced, marked, and haunted by histories and stories of violence and displacement.
