Knowledge from the Margins: Social Justice and Sustainability
(Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)
In Science and Technology Studies (STS) there is increasing interest in re-turning to the study of "knowledge from the margins": knowledge from peo-ple and institutions who are marginal to modern knowledge production, ex-cluded from it, or said to be lacking in it.
