Resumé

In ’Science as a vacation’, Michael Lynch argues that ’STS might aim for something other than the serious job of doing business’. In so doing, he makes a strong case for an STS that does not aim to be useful but instead does ‘its own job’. In our
presentation, we will explore some of the challenges associated with this position and especially its relationship to STS traditions of policy relevance and engagement. What does it mean for STS to do its job? Or rather, what does it mean for us to do our jobs? Taking inspiration both from Lynch’s published work and the different ways he has performed his STS jobs, this presentation will discuss the relationship between vacation, work, professional ethos and personal contribution in the context of STS.
