Marres, Noortje, Prof. Dr.

Mercator Fellow

Noortje Marres is Associate Professor in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at the University of Warwick. She will be in Siegen from October to December 2017.

I studied Sociology and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Amsterdam, and did my doctoral research at that same university, and at the Ecole des Mines (Paris). My work contributes to the interdisciplinary field of Science, Technology and Society (STS) and investigates issues at the intersection of innovation, politics, environment and everday life: problems of participation in technological societies; the role of objects in contemporary democracy; living experiments; the changing relations between social science and social life in a digital age. I also work on social research methodology, in particular issue mapping, and am interested in developing creative forms of inquiry between the social sciences, computing and the arts
