Symposium | April 11 & 12, 2019

I co-organized a 2 day graduate Science Studies mini-symposium sponsored by the Science Studies Program at UCSD. Dr.Lorraine Daston was invited to lead graduate workshops and deliver a university-wide lecture titled BIG CALCULATION AND THE HISTORY OF INTELLIGENCE. Graduate students from various UCs presented their work at the graduate workshops.

My presentation titled Being Particular About Particles: Diffuse Objects in Computer Graphics and Physical Science set up dust as a scientific and technical diffuse object which begins to problematize how the field of computer graphics and the physical sciences are calibrated on the solid.
