Long abstract:

The New England Workshop on Science and Social Change (NewSSC) invites 4S/EASST participants to join us for one or both of its hours for "Connecting and Reflecting Together." The processes that will be used, to be explained in the sessions, are drawn from many years of experimental, interaction-intensive, interdisciplinary, multi-day NewSSC workshops that "foster collaboration among those who teach, study, and engage with the public about scientific developments and social change" (sicw.wikispaces.com/newssc). The first session will address the question: "How have I come to be someone who would attend 4S/EASST at this time?"
