A little bit more than a year ago, on the 8th of July 2022, more than 50 STS-scholars attending the European Association of Science and Technology Studies (EASST) conference in Madrid participated in a three-hour “thermodynamic” bus ride organised by the WAVEMATTERS-team. On this bus ride, Jos Temprano and Victor Rovira, a local team of a filmmaker and a soundrecordist, joined us and together we produced this video of the ride through heat.
In this project we take an experimental approach to a stubborn problem: How to evaluate and institutionalize more-than-textual research that is often impossible to classify and at odds with traditional modes of disciplinary knowledge production?
