> MORAL ECONOMIES OF SCIENCE
>
> Key words: Moral economies; ethical capital; regulation; tacit  
> knowledge; professional ethos
>
>
>
> Description: Moral economies of science imply a trade off between  
> the objectivity of scientific research and the ideals and attitudes  
> of the scientific community. Historians of science have used this  
> concept to theorise different kinds of objectivity, and with that  
> chart the emergence of objects of scientific enquiry. This session  
> explores the usefulness of this concept within geographical  
> research. We hope to encourage dialogue between anthropologists,  
> sociologists, STS scholars, geographers and those working in  
> related disciplines who are researching the potential and actual  
> transformations of biomedicine. We welcome empirical and conceptual  
> papers on the following themes:
>
>
>
> Accumulation/distribution of scientific and ethical capital
> Regulating biotechnology
> Risk, responsibility and accountability
> Exercising professional judgement
> Personal and tacit knowledge
> The role of expertise in society.
