A sample of the things I do. Some are 'traditionally' academic, others are meant to broaden academia.
Talks&Keynotes et al
In September 2017 I will give a keynote at the closing session of the 3rd Conference "Rumos da Sociologia do Conhecimento, Ciencia e Tecnologia em Portugal". The session is called "Nanotechnology and Society: From research to the citizen". (7&8/09/2017)
Keynote at the 2017 Joint meeting Red EsCTS and Portuguese STS Network
In June of 2017 I was invited to give a keynote at the Joint Meeting of the Spanish and Portuguese STS networks, dedicated to the theme "Lost in translation? People, technologies, practices and concepts across boundaries". (From minute 22 onwards)
Viver pelos números?
No dia 25 de Junho de 2015 às 18h apresentei resultados do meu projecto no 'Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia" da Universidade de Lisboa.
On 17-April-2015 I presented preliminary results of my ethnography of the London QS group.
Presenting my project in London
In September of 2014 I was happy to present my research project on the Quantified Self at the QS London meeting. I discussed my research and its goals. You can see the video here.
#217 Nanotecnologia do Avesso com a Dra. Ana Viseu
In June 2013 I did a remote presentation for a Brazilian science communication web program, called 'Nanotecnologia do Avesso' or 'Nano inside out'. Using my experience as a former in-house social scientist, I spoke about the policy of integration that mandates the integration of social scientists within nanotech facilities. You can see the video here.
I am a feminist, a woman, a scientist, a mother, an educator, a citizen, an activist.My thinking is informed by that of other feminist scholars who are equally committed to creating and being accountable to a world that is inclusive of Others and alternative ways of being and doing.
Feminist Technoscience Summer School - 2016
In May 2016 I was one of the guest tutors invited to contribute to the amazing summer school in Feminist Technoscience Studies at Lancaster University.
"Politics of Care" workshop
In April of 2012 I co-organized a workshop on "The Politics of Care in Technoscience". It was a wonderful event that brought together prominent scholars, such as Charis Thompson, Lucy Suchman, Lorraine Code or Karen Barad. You can see the website here.
One of the things that I love doing is presenting for non-academic audiences. It forces me to explain myself better, and it is great to interact with people who care differently about the world. Here are some examples of things I've done.
Noite Europeia dos Investigadores 2016
On September 30th, 2016 I gave a sprint talk at the "European Researchers Night". I discussed the use of apps to monitor our everyday life and body and what this might mean for the future.
In January of 2016 I was invited to go on TV (TVI) to discuss my research and the use of apps to monitor one's health.
European Science TV & New Media Awards
In November 2015 I was invited to participate in a debate on the "Rosetta Mission". It was amazing!
Noite Europeia dos Investigadores 2013
In 2013 I was invited to participate in the European Researchers' Night. I took part in a debate on robots and society that was titled, "Queres ser meu amigo?" or "Can we be friends?" This event was organized by Ciencia Viva with funding from the EU and Marie Curie. It was held at Pavilhao do Conhecimento, Lisbon, Portugal, Sept. 27th 2013.
The NanoGagliato was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. It is a yearly meeting of scientists, organized by Prof. Mauro Ferrari, that includes a public science discussion. I participated in its early days in 2009. The even was supposed to start at 9 or 10pm, but there were delays and we ended up starting it was past midnight. Amazingly nobody budged. This photo was taken as we were about to start, it was almost midnight, and the piazza was crowded with people, from seniors to babies, who sat there for a number of hours waiting and listening to us talk about nanomedicine.
Privacy Lecture Series
From 2000 to 2002, while I was still a doctoral candidate, I created and run the 'Privacy Lecture Series.' I am happy to say it was a tremendous success! You check it out here.
