CFP: Young Scholars Forum for Collection and Object Research (Göttingen 28-30 Sept, 17)

‘Telescope, Microscope, perception and insight’: Instruments of Visualization in Scientific Practice – an interdisciplinary workshop for young scientists and scholars
Venue: Historische Sternwarte Göttingen
A workshop of the Zentrale Kustodie der Universität Göttingen
28.-30. September 2017
Application deadline 1 July, 2017
Working with scientific instruments appears to be uncomplicated at first glance. Microscopes reveal what one can not grasp with the naked eye. Remote objects appear very close with appropriate instruments. X-rays or MRI scanners bring transparency to solid objects and reveal internal structures and connections.
The use of different scientific equipment and models is, however, by no means trivial nor self-evident. In addition to a specific language, which must first be learned and deciphered, technical images and models are embedded in disciplinary image conventions, image traditions and (local) standards. Apparatus, instruments, and the visualizations they produce are thus far more than mere neutral, which transform the natural world into a neutral visual language.
The ‘Junges Forum für Sammlungs- und Objektforschung’ invites applications for 20mins presentations.
