Mapping the transition of the Catalan Health system to Network Society. A work in progress. How was research developed?

May 20, 2009

From May to September,  I’m a visiting researcher at Science and Technology Studies Unit (SATSU).

SATSU, in the Department of Sociology, “is a specialist unit dedicated to rigorous analysis of the social dynamics informing contemporary and prospective science and technology. It has an established international reputation as a centre of excellence in three areas: the sociology of the biosciences, mobilities, informatics and space, and science and technology governance. the Department of Sociology” directed by Andrew Webster.

As a part of my visiting at SATSU, Darren Reed has invited me to teach a seminar in his course entitled Exemplary Empirical Studies in Social Informatics in the MSc Social Informatics and Management. My intervention was about how the research I have been involved in the past years was developed. So it is not about the research results but about research processes. Here goes the slides:

Finally, I would like to thank  all the wonderful people I have met at SATSU for their kindness.  It was so easy to settle into the unit. Of course, special thanks indeed to Michael Hardey.
