Transcript of Science Studies and emotions

Emotions relevant to SS ?
worries?
Human enhancement = Enhancement drugs
sexual: viagra, female sexual dinsfucntion
emotional: occitocine AFECTIVE BONDING
Foucault 'self care practices'
knowledge and practice to 'imporve our selves'
only TO REGULATE THE USE OF DRUGS??
TO EXPAND SITES OF EXPERTISE
('YACIMIENTOS' de saber)
SCIENTIFIC TRADITION
LOCATION
MEDIATION
EVOLUTION
GENETICS
to better understand how biopower works in XXI century
to contribute to a less docile understanding of our selves and better articulate constructivism/agency/action
to recognize deep socio-cultural problems (time acceleration) obscured by pharmaceutical drugs
to live better and enhace our awareness in a pharmaceutical world
TO IDENTIFY HOW EMOTIONS CONTRIBUTE TO GENERATE TECHNOSCIENCE
hiden innovation
"Hidden Innovation attempts to bridge this gap by analysing the innovation systems of six sectors that are seen as having low levels of innovation: oil production, retail banking, construction, legal aid services, education and the rehabilitation of offenders.

It examines whether these sectors are truly lacking in innovation, or whether traditional measures of innovation - such as investment in R&D - are failing to capture all of the innovation that takes place. NESTA 2007
NESTA is the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts - an independent body with a mission to make the UK more innovative.
SS traditional approach
Postcolonial science studies
Helen Verran David Turnbull: 'knowledge systems as assemblage of local knowledge'
Spivak, Chalmers and Gillispie --> centres & periferies of knowledge historically constructed
my historical work
'yacimientos' of knowledge
locate a site
deep --> excavate
distill --> translation / balance
scientific tradition
social & cultural knowledge
recovering lost knowledge (including from de past)
manteinining cultural diversity of emotions and its orchestration
not giving up to science but dialoge with 'scientific tradition'
better understanding 'communities of emotions' (ROSENWEIN, 2010)
identify how different contexts (social, historical, cultural) --> different orchestration of emotions
HOW TO KNOW ABOUT EMOTIONS
How to understand the relation btw 'emotional regimes' and 'emotional communities'
HOW TO BUILT A CONVERSATION BETWEEN EPISTEMIC COMMUNITIES OF EMOTIONS (SCIENTIFIC TRADITION AND CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE) to debilitate traditional boundaries
More democratic construction of knowledge (Holst)--> 'ECOLOGICAL THINKING' (Lorraine CODE)
feminist science studies
emotion studies
(subjectivity studies)
alternative views to the unconscious and subjectivity
LUTZ 80s 'constructivist views'
Ahmed 'The Cultural Politics of the Emotions'
Berlant 'The female complaint'
Depres 'Our emotional make-up'
REDDY 'emotional regimes'
STERNS 'emotionology (context)
ROSENWEIN: historicity of emotions
JAGGAR 1989 love and knowledge emotion in feminist epistemology
Emotion necessary for reliable knowledge
inside-->ouside model
ouside-->inside model
«emotions may be helpful and even necessary rather than inimical to the construction of knowledge”
POSITIVIST (DUMB VIEW) (Jaggar)
HARAWAY & HARDING (situatedness). reconstruct epistemology for new emergent knowing subjects partial perspectives are embodied and situated --> accountable & objective

Carol GUILLIAN --> listening carefully to hers research subjects she questioned the Lawrence Kohlberg’s stage theory of moral development (inferiorated women)
to make emerge new subjects to participate in the production of meaning for emotions
From the September 2010 Scientific American Mind | 7 comments
Mapping the Mind: Online Interactive Atlas Shows Activity of 20,000 Brain-Related Genes ( Preview )
A meticulously constructed atlas of the human brain reveals the molecular roots of mental illnessand of everyday behavior
http://www.critical-neuroscience.org/
The atlas may provide molecular clues to memory, attention, motor coordination, hunger, and perhaps emotions such as happiness or anxiety. (Scientific American Mind, 2010)
misrepresented
body reactions only?
not about anything else (knowledege or reason?)
COGNITIVE PSICHOLOGY
Still too rational view?
THEY PRESUPPOSE LANGUAGE AND A SOCIAL ORDER
No passive or involuntary responses, RATHER ARE WAYS WE ENGAGE ACTIVELY EVEN CONSTRUCT WORLD
MENTAL AND PHYSICAL
CHOOSE AND INVOLUNTARY
to locate ourselves in new positions to negotiate about (emotions) meanings
OUR DICHOTOMIES DO NOT GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF WHAT EMOTIONS ARE
the difficulty to transform knowledge resides precisely in the fact that it implies to transform ourselves

PHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH
Jennifer R. Fishman Manufacturing Desire:
The Commodification of Female Sexual Dysfunction. SSS
Academic researchers assist pharmaceutical companies in identifying and creating new markets, actors in the social network who mediate the junctions between technological producers and consumers
Flibanserin Drug: Will 'Female Viagra' Boost Sex Drive? - TIME
EMILY MARTIN
The pharmaceutical person
I trace the historical development of personhood in relation to psychotropic drugs over the last few decades in the US. ‘Pills’ or, more accurately, ‘tablets’ and ‘capsules’, are described as products of manufacturing, as means of enhancing personal capacities and as objects in exhibits. In particular, I analyze the underside of pillstheir ‘side’ effectsin relation to fears and desires characteristic of contemporary US culture.
to become mutually intelligible
TRANSLATING
connect diverse and distanced knowledge ecosystems
lack reliable system of representing and understanding emotion (Peter BURKE)
being postcolonial inside our culture?
failing to capture all of the innovation that takes place
But probably it is easier to apply this postcolonial view for other worlds distant from us in Space or time than for local communities (popular culture) resident in our worlds.
dialogue amongst knowledge

ECOLOGY OF AFFECTS?
