Epistemic Infrastructures, the Instrumental Turn & the Digital Humanities
With Jim Malazita, Assistant Professor, Science & Technology Studies, Games & Simulation Arts & Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Instrumentalist culture in higher education is often described as a pragmatic, apolitical focus on tools and technologies. This talk will argue for understanding Instrumentalism as an ideological framework, in part designed as antithesis to efforts at bridging Humanities and STEM education in the 1960s.
