Professor AnneMarie Mol (University of Amsterdam) gave a talk on “Some eating body’s wider relevance: on the elsewheres of the case” as part of the Science and Technology Studies (STS) seminar series Issues in Scale at the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society (InSIS). Her presentation addressed how ethnographic research, despite its local specificity, may still attend and pertain to the wider world. In particular, she suggested considering ethnographic research as case studies that ‘contain traces from elsewhere’ and as such may be relevant on a broader scale.
