Launched in 2008, the Technoscience Salon is an open forum for entangling intellectual and political questions about technoscience while remixing the disciplines composing Science and Technology Studies. Meeting monthly, the Salon aims to create a lively community of thinkers with interests in technoscience studies from around the GTA and beyond. The Salon takes up a new theme each year. Drawing participants from multiple universities as well as artistic and technical communities, the Salon aspires to prompt playful and experimental engagements, as well as new collaborations and conversations. The Salon is co-organized by Michelle Murphy, Natash Myers, and collaborators. From 2008-2013, the Salon was funded by the SSHRC Situating Science Cluster Grant.
