Lucy Suchman is a Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director of Lancaster’s Centre for Science Studies. Her research has involved ethnographic studies of everyday practices of technology design and use. Lucy Suchman’s Medea Talk explores recent developments in the study of digital media that recover the entanglements of bodies and technologies. Drawing on a series of examples from her own research and others within science and technology studies (STS) and design, she will make the case for an understanding of information as irreducibly social and material, virtual and real. In October, Lucy Suchman will be appointed as Honorary Doctorate at Malmö University.
