Biosensors in Everyday workshop January 15, 2015

Thursday January 15, 2015
10am to 4pm
INFOLAB C60B/C, Lancaster University
How can sociology and science and technology studies (STS) help us understand the use of biosensors to track everyday bodily experiences such as heart rate, ovulation, glucose levels and blood pressure? How have these devices become part of our everyday lives?
 
This interactive workshop will include talks from Professor Deborah Lupton (University of Canberra) and Dr. Karen Throsby (University of Leeds) and a chance to experiment hands on with biosensors and to explore their relevance to contemporary social thought.

Please bring a biosensor if you use one!
 
The workshop is free to attend but please register your interest by the 12th of January so we can ensure that there is lunch for everyone.
