MidweSTS is an annual event connecting grad students with STS interests in the midwest/great lakes region. Feature events this year include:

  • Keynote address from Michael Mascarenhas. Mascarenhas’s impressive work draws together critical race theory, and environmental justice, and addresses issues ranging from the political economy of natural resources to the transformation of politics and power dynamics in humanitarian policy.
  • Interactive workshop on strategies for teaching STS. Faculty and grad students will help you build your toolkit of teaching techniques by demonstrating some of their favorite classroom exercises for illustrating STS concepts.
  • Displaced Horizons: Exhibition/Performance. Socialize with your fellow students at this artistic exhibition and musical performance, which draws inspiration from infrastructural thought in STS to create an aesthetic and experiential reorientation towards water infrastructures’ socio-cultural and historical complexities.
