Platypus, the CASTAC Blog, presents "Down to a Science" a podcast that examines the world of science from social and historical perspectives. How does science work and does it have to work that way? Season 1 will discuss the economization of life, numbers and objectivity, and studying data science ethnographically. --- CASTAC’s mission is to facilitate communication within the AAA among anthropologists working in areas related to science, technology and computing, and to promote the visibility of anthropological research on technoscience.
