Interruptions and Facilitations: Moving Knowledge between Different Contexts

Sat, September 7, 2:45 to 4:15pm, Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, Floor: Five, Grand Ballroom E


How can we think about the movement of knowledge from one epistemic culture to another? That is, how can different experts share knowledge in a meaningful way, and how can expert knowledge be made meaningful to laypersons?
This open panel calls for theoretical contributions to understanding the movement of knowledge between experts or between experts and laypersons. We want to explore new and other ways of in detail tracing the practices, structures, and relationships that interrupt or facilitate the movement of knowledge from one site to another. How can we acknowledge epistemic differences and how they interrupt or are overcome in the movement of knowledge? Which new theoretical notions can be fruitful to capture these movements and interruptions?

Key words: interruptions, facilitations, movement of knowledge, epistemic cultures
