STIS Takes It To The Fringe!
STIS staff and students are involved in a series of Edinburgh Fringe Festival events, showcasing our research and celebrating the 50th anniversary of our department.
The Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (STIS) Subject Group is happy to announce a series of public engagemnt events for Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which will be held throughout August 2016 and which will be presented by our staff and students.
These are fun events challenging popular opinions and showcasing cutting-edge research we do. They include open discussions and should be of interest to a varied academic and non-academic audience.
We are particularly pleased to be reaching out in our anniversary year, as we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the creation of the Scinece Studies Unit (SSU), a STIS' predecessor.
The events are part of the Cabaret of Dangereous Ideas (CoDI) series, organised by the Beltane Network and running every day in August, 3-4pm, at the Stand in the Square (Fringe Venue 372).
In particular STIS is contributing to the following events:
- Matjaz Vidmar: “Let Big Brother Watch” (15th August)
- Miguel Garcia Sancho, Helen Sang and Tilo Kunath : “Dolly the Sheep: Major Discovery or Minor Distraction?” (25th August)
- Gill Haddow: “One-Stop-Body-Shop” (28th August)
Here you can find more info about other shows in the series (including some from our other colleagues in School of Social and Political Science). Further details are also available at the CoDI blog, and on Twitter via #CoDI2016.
