Cultures and Affects of Science in Humanities

The research group Culture and Affects of Science in Humanities (CASH) explores and examines the cultures, materialisms, narratives, affects and histories of science and technologies and its embodied effects in its pasts, presents and futures. It takes seriously the deep entanglement of human perception and science, and the group arose amidst contemporary cultural anxieties about sciences as both the root of ecological and human destruction as well as the hope and promise of natural and human resurrection.

While we study how science has come to form the world, as we know it and how the present world of increased technologization and intensified globalism exposes and recalibrates the human condition in the world, CASH insists ‘that something is at stake in Cultural Studies’.
