About Binocular

“Chimerizations” is the fourth annual Binocular Conference, co-hosted by the Department of Science and Technology Studies, York University and the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto.

While STS and HPST often have different methodologies, concerns, styles, and goals, both disciplines train their sights on science and technology. The Binocular Conference is an opportunity for the graduate communities of the University of Toronto and York University to intentionally bring these “lenses” together, to mutually benefit from each others’ perspectives and scholarship.
